TRAINING COURSE ON JUDICIAL AFFAIRS AND RULE OF LAW IN PEACE MISSIONS
Rule of Law (RoL) constitutes one of the Key Pillars of the substantive operations of the United Nations in peacekeeping and political field missions. Every UN Security Council Mandate includes a RoL mandate to Field Missions, and constitutes a key component of peacekeeping and peacebuilding activities of the United Nations, and also feature strongly in the mandates of most UN Agencies, Funds and Programmes, including the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), or the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), to name but two of the largest entities of the UN with strong RoL mandates and activities.
This international training course will allow participants to understand the theory and practice of rule of law assistance in conflict-affected states. Through the use of case studies, interactive exercises and experience sharing, participants will expand their rule of law knowledge and skills to be better equipped to face the challenges of effective rule of law promotion and implementation.
The training course aims to familiarize participants with the structures and methodologies in place to implement Rule of Law (RoL) strategies and programmes from a practical perspective.
