United Nations Civilian Staff Officer Course (UNCIVSOC)
The FBA supports SWEDINT in the planning and evaluation of the course. Furthermore, the FBA contributes to the course with expertise on conflict prevention, security sector reform and disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of combatants.
Participants will develop their understanding of the meaning of a multidimensional and integrated mission concept. Other topics discussed include the rule of law, electoral processes and gender integration.
The UNCIVSOC course targets civilian personnel in government or non-governmental organizations and UN staff. This two-week course is partly conducted jointly with the military UN staff officer course and the UN police commander course. It is concluded by an integrated exercise where civilians, the military and police work together in an imaginary UN mission headquarters to practice cooperation.
During 2017 the course is offered 1–12 May and 20 November–1 December.
