Start date: 16 Nov 2015 8:30am | End date: 27 Nov 2015 3:00pm
The annual DDR Course will be held in Barcelona 16-27 November 2015. The aim of this senior/middle management course is to give the participants a comprehensive view on DDR in order to increase their understanding of programmes, projects and activities needed for a peaceful development. The course will combine experiences from different DDR programmes with theoretical views on the subject.
The course is to a large extent based on the UN Integrated DDR Standards (IDDRS) for concepts, guiding principles and good practice on various issues from programme planning, design, management, and monitoring and evaluation to cross cutting issues, such as gender and children. Furthermore, the course includes discussions on mandates, changing environments and challenges as well as on the international legal framework within which DDR programmes operate.
The participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of Peace Support Operations and a need or strong interest to learn about DDR. Invited participants are civil servants, diplomats, police, military personnel, academics and representatives from International and Non-Governmental Organisations. The course also provides the participants with an opportunity to build an international professional network.
