ZIF offers four different types of courses: 

  1. Core Course Peace Operations
  2. Election Observation (short-term and long-term election observation)

Course topics depend on current political developments and mandates of international peace operations, and serve as a praxis-oriented preparation for work in the field. Through the exchange with national and international training institutions, as well as other relevant international partners, course curricula are continuously adapted to meet current developments in the field.
