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.

EUCTI

EU Civilian Training Initiative is a three-year project funded by the EU and coordinated by the Slovenian Centre for European Perspective (CEP). FBA and seven other training institutes in Europe are project partners. EUCTI is a follow-up to Europe’s New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (ENTRi), that FBA previously was a member of. 

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, where FBA represents Sweden on behalf of the Foreign Ministry. 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.

All staff that is seconded to EU's peace missions and other international crisis management missions go through a mandatory pre-departure training in order to be well prepared for their assignments. 

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.
