Forced Migration: The Humanitarian Challenge of the Decade Training Course

Wed, 08 Apr 2020 02:52:40 +0000

Organization: Institute of International Humanitarian Affairs
Start date: 26 Aug 2020
End date: 18 Dec 2020
Registration deadline: 24 Apr 2020

Millions of people worldwide have been forcibly displaced across countries and continents for a wide range of reasons, including armed conflict and natural disasters. Some have become refugees or Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), while others live as irregular migrants. Some have been trafficked and live as victims of modern slavery. All find their futures dependent on political decisions and local perceptions driven by the media. This course will equip students to understand the complexity of forced migration and its relevant legal and protection framework, including International Refugee Law and the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement. It will also address recent developments and the shift in emphasis from solving the problem of forced migration to the provision of durable solutions. This course is recommended for students who are interested in forced migration or who may wish to work in the areas of protection and response to affected populations. It is also recommended for humanitarian practitioners who are already working in this field and want to improve their knowledge and understanding of these complex issues. The course will be taught by Professor Anthony Land, Ph.D.

Professor Anthony Land has over 40 years of humanitarian experience working with the UN and NGOs. He served with UNHCR as Head of Office and Chief of Operations responding to major situations of displacements in Asia, Africa, and Europe for 21 years. This includes a senior role in UNHCR’s response to the war in Bosnia (Sarajevo), Kosovo, and Chechnya, and work in donor relations raising funds for many of the operations in which he served. Since 2006, he has developed and taught post graduate courses in both classroom settings and by distance learning. He regularly lectures on courses run by Fordham and Bournemouth Universities, and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.

Humanitarian Advocacy: Communicating the Need and Motivating the Response Training Course

Wed, 08 Apr 2020 02:50:48 +0000

Organization: Institute of International Humanitarian Affairs
Start date: 26 Aug 2020
End date: 18 Dec 2020
Registration deadline: 24 Apr 2020

Humanitarians work in hostile environments where people are struggling for survival in situations of armed conflict or natural disasters. In such environments, people may have been forced to flee their homes with few—if any—belongings and may have suffered or witnessed human rights violations. Their plight needs to be communicated to the world in a way that will motivate the deployment of the protection and aid they so desperately need. This course will prepare students for the task of advocacy in humanitarian environments. It will focus on the identification of the most vulnerable members of a large group of survivors and the communication of their needs. It will equip students with the skills required to effectively communicate with local authorities as well as the international donor community. Students will learn to write in a different way than the academic style expected in other courses, focusing on effective advocacy messaging. This course is recommended for students who may envisage working directly in advocacy for responding to humanitarian needs. It is also recommended for humanitarian practitioners who wish to prepare for a role in advocacy or are already working in this area. The course will be taught by Professor Anne Edgerton.

Anne Edgerton has over 20 years of experience working in humanitarian organizations, including Relief International, UNOCHA, Child Fund International, and Oxfam. Most recently, she served as the Executive Director of Mental Health America of Virginia. She has also worked in academia as Adjunct Professor at William and Mary College and at the University of Richmond. Her publications include papers on the denial of humanitarian access, humanitarian advocacy, child protection, violent conflict, and the impact of genocide on children.

End date: 18 Dec 2020
Registration deadline: 24 Apr 2020

When responding to humanitarian emergencies, managers need the right skills to work in exceptional, rapidly changing and sometimes dangerous situations. While some conventional techniques may be employed, having skills that take into account the environment and the emotional impact of emergencies on teams and individuals is crucial. This course will teach students the skills required to manage teams responding to humanitarian crises. For students planning to work in such environments, it is recommended that they reflect on whether they envisage being in leadership roles or might need to understand the role of those under whose management they will work. The course is also recommended for humanitarian practitioners at all levels who want to improve their leadership and management skills. The course will be taught by Professor Peter Rees-Gildea.

Peter Rees-Gildea has over 40 years of experience in humanitarian work. During his career, Peter served as Field Director of AfghanAid and worked for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies for 20 years. In 2010, he founded his own company, working as a consultant to humanitarian organizations, including various European national Red Cross societies, as well as the British Government aid agency (DFID). He has also served as an UNDAC team leader. He most recently worked with the Danish Red Cross focusing on their partnership with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent in the context of the war in Syria.

Gender and Peacebuilding

3credits/9weeks

13 Apr 2020 - 12 Jun 2020

Professor Gal Harmat

The course constitutes an advanced course dealing with central structural arrangements conducive towards war, militarism, hegemonic masculinities, Femininities, nationalism, conflict creation and resolution, greed, and competitiveness and its consequent violence, including violence against women. The impediments specifically created by lack of gender equity will be analyzed, an analysis that is seen as pivotal for peacekeeping in times of rapid globalization.

Some of the material assigned for the course offers specific strategies for empowerment and achieving gender equity, while representing the necessity for these strategies to be connected to a structural changes and a drastic shift away from the discourses concerning women with the terms “vulnerabilities” and victimization and about males as innately aggressive. It examines the complex relationships between gender, biology, race, class, ethnicity, nationalism, religion, sexual orientation, militarization, both in the domestic and the public spheres. The former is analyzed as a pillar for the latter. Global gender indicators will complement the above material.

The definitions of what constitutes human security have been shifting, specifically when analyzed from a clear gender perspective, assuming that: a) there is no clear boundary between war and peace for women worldwide; and b) security considerations go beyond that of relationships between States and focus on the human. The course will thus focus on peace building and peace education, as well as Gender analysis to Security and peace building.

Decentralized Governance and Peacebuilding

Tue, 07 Apr 2020 03:13:29 +0000

Organization: UN System Staff College
Start date: 20 Apr 2020
End date: 15 May 2020
Registration deadline: 30 Apr 2020
Introduction

Local governments are often the first to collapse when factions fight for territorial control. In post-conflict settings, the state is often unable to effectively reach parts of its territory for years. Given these challenges, it is no surprise that decentralization and local governance provisions are increasingly prominent in peace agreements and national post-conflict peacebuilding agendas.

This online course explores how decentralization contributes to peacebuilding and identifies the elements of local governance that are most relevant in a post-conflict/peacebuilding context. Concrete case studies are used to illustrate successful decentralization reforms and peacebuilding efforts at the local level.

Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Discuss the different forms of decentralized governance (deconcentration, delegation, devolution) and their implications for the organization of the state at the subnational level;
  • Identify key elements that can improve the effectiveness of a decentralization process for peacebuilding;
  • Examine the relationship between decentralization and peacebuilding, and assess the extent to which effective decentralized governance may help prevent or mitigate the risk of violent conflicts, and/or contribute to their peaceful resolution
Course Methodology

This programme is delivered entirely online over four weeks. It combines self-paced modules and live online sessions with subject-matter experts and seasoned practitioners. It also provides interactive spaces for experience sharing, joint reflection and peer exchange. A UNSSC tutor will guide and support you throughout your learning journey.

The programme is hosted on the UNSSC online learning platform, UNKampus, which allows you a high degree of flexibility to access content at your own pace, from anywhere and at any time.

Course Contents

In this programme, you will explore the necessary conditions for decentralization and local governance to make positive contributions to peacebuilding.

The course modules focus on:

  • Decentralized Governance: Key Concepts;
  • Effective Decentralization for Peacebuilding;
  • The Politics of Decentralized Governance;
  • Fiscal Decentralization and Accountability;
  • Violence, Security and Peacebuilding in a Decentralized Framework;
  • Role of Decentralization in Improving Local Economies and the Delivery of Basic Services;
  • Decentralization: Case Studies.
Target Audience

UN staff as well as practitioners and representatives from governments, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, civil society and academia.

Cost of participation

The programme fee amounts to $500. The fee includes access to all training and learning materials as well as participation in live online sessions and one-to-one support from a UNSSC tutor.

This course is for those who are already IMAS EOD Level 3 qualified and would, due to enhancing their skill set, like to have a more in-depth knowledge on the way IEDs and Booby Traps are constructed, initiated, and where they are likely to be located. The course will enable successful students with the skills to conduct Advance Search threat assessments, extensive planning and execution of recognised Search procedures. These skills will all contribute to the safe locating and marking of legacy IEDs and hides using intelligence assessments, systematic procedures and appropriate detection techniques. Consequently, aiding follow up agencies with the disposal or recovery of finds and allowing the environment to be returned to normal. The HIEDS course has been designed in a way to assess students’ ability to perform as Advance Search Advisors, Team Leaders and Team Searchers in a permissive environment. Furthermore, this HIEDS course contributes the first step towards the Humanitarian IED Disposal (HIEDD) qualification, delivered at MAT Kosovo, allowing attendees to work towards HIEDD in a manageable, non-time consuming way.
