Education and Training Networks

FBA collaborates with other training institutions.  The agency heads the National Coordination Meeting on Training, which gathers together Swedish government agencies that train and deploy people to peacekeeping operations. Internationally, the FBA participates in the following networks.

ENTRi

Europe’s New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (ENTRi) is a capacity enhancement project supported by the European Commission. The ENTRi project focuses on providing training for civilian staff working in international peace and crisis management missions led by organizations such as the EU, UN and African Union.

ENTRi also promotes harmonization among civilian training initiatives in Europe. FBA is an active member of ENTRi.

ESDC  

European Security and Defence College (ESDC) is a network college with the aim of providing strategic-level education on the EU Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). The ESDC is governed by a steering committee composed of representatives from the different EU member states. The steering committee is supported by the Executive Academic Board composed of the different training institutions. EU member states participate voluntarily. The FBA runs several courses within the framework of ESDC and is active member of the ESDC's Executive Academic Board.

IAPTC

The International Association of Peacekeeping Training Centres (IAPTC) is an open and voluntary association of centres, institutions, and programmes dealing with peace operations research, education, and training. The objective is to promote better understanding of peacekeeping, its aims and objectives, and of the methods used in training for peace operations of all types. There is an annual conference hosted by one of the participating countries or organizations. The FBA is a permanent member of the IAPTC Consolidation and Development Committee and hosted the conference in Stockholm in 2007.

EAPTC

The European Association for Peace Operations Training Centres (EAPTC) is one of the chapters of IAPTC (mentioned above). EAPTC was established in 2013 to encourage networking and to establish partnerships with other similar networks in order to be cost-effective, to strengthen coordination and cooperation, to continue high-quality training and share good practices related to the design and provision of training within the sphere of peace operations.
