The purpose of this event is to deliver a Protection of Civilians Training of Trainers (POC-ToT) Course (in July 2017), designed to prepare national-level training peacekeeping training center cadre to deliver United nations approved Protection of Civilians (POC) training, in support of national pre-deployment training for on-going United Nations peacekeeping missions. This course (MASL 273013) is regularly conducted by CCMR throughout the Asia-Pacific area. This training was coordinated and agreed upon bilaterally by the US and Indonesian governments during the Bilateral Defense Discussions.
If this course does not occur it would diminish Japan’s capacity to train future deploying peacekeepers, specifically peacekeeping contingent commanders, to serve in UN Peacekeeping Missions and may negatively affect future US-JPN cooperation. Indonesia is currently a leading contributor to peacekeeping missions to UN Missions worldwide. There is potential that failure to support this training could adversely impact force generation for potential new UN missions or extend already deployed contingents in place due to inadequately trained replacements available.
The course is pre-coordinated in detail and supported by the Office of Defense Cooperation, US Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, USPACOM staff and the Center For Civil-Military Relations, Naval Postgraduate School.
