Rule of Law Course 2017


ZIF facilitated a training course on "Rule of Law Toolbox for Crisis Management and Peace Operations: Concepts, Practices and Trends" in Berlin from 1 to 8 December 2017. Fifteen experts from seven countries with diverse professional backgrounds participated in the course.

The course introduced diverse analytical "tools" making it easier for Rule of Law practitioners to identify key players and networks in the field. Based on the actual situation in various crisis regions, different case studies were used to try out practical application of these tools.

Group work was conducive to a lively exchange of mission experience among the participants. ZIF had invited a team of overall twelve international trainers to advise and support the group with their own practical experiences from the field, including experienced Rule of Law trainers from international organisations such as the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO), the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) and the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF).
