Gender Equality Training Needs for the EU's Civilian Common Security and Defence Policy Missions
In 2018, EU member states and the Council agreed on a Civilian CSDP Compact to strengthen the civilian Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) missions in addressing longstanding as well as emerging security challenges. In the Compact, member states and the Council commit to invest in a more capable civilian CSDP, including through training. The EU Civilian Training Group (EU CTG) was established to manage the process of analysing training requirements for CSDP missions.
The Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) were appointed to form the Civilian Coordinator of Training (CCT) on Gender Equality, with the task to analyse the training requirements in the field of gender equality.
