5-day course on Protection of Civilians (POC) in the context of UN peacekeeping and the range of protection actors who work alongside peacekeeping operations. The course aims to train the Jordanian police female unit by providing a conceptual understanding of legal rules, authorities and obligations that govern the actions of peacekeepers with regards to POC. The course will also cover the rights and obligations of peacekeepers (particularly with regards to the use of force as it pertains to POC).
Additionally, the operational concept of the three tiers of protection activities - (Protection through the political process, Protection from physical violence, Establishing a protective environment) and the 4 phases of Protection Response - (Assurance/Prevention, Pre-emption, Response, and Consolidation) will be discussed.
Peacekeeping personnel will be familiarized with the unique nature of sexual violence in armed conflict as part of POC, distinguishing between conflict related sexual violence (CRSV) & sexual and gender based violence (SGBV), 1325, and will be left with a better understanding of the integrated approach required to prevent and address sexual violence. Throughout, the course addresses the human cost as well as the political and institutional consequences of the failure to "protect".
