The nature of civilian crisis interventions often requires staff to operate in unstable and insecure environments. Even though an armed conflict may have not yet occurred or hostilities have ceased, there may be periods of unrest caused by uncontrolled elements making use of the current unstable situation in the host country or the settlement of the conflict. In many countries, risks for the personal safety of mission members may also include organised crime, theft, assault and hostage taking. Therefore, certain patterns of security awareness and behaviour must be part of the toolbox of each civilian expert.
The assurance of the safety and security of their personnel is the single most important duty of care of states and organisations sending their staff to hazardous or hostile areas. Additionally, appropriate security measures will - by reducing known risks to an operationally acceptable level - enable fulfilling mission objectives and therefore contribute to them. Hostile environment awareness training is crucial for anyone working in risk-associated, insecure or hostile environments. Accordingly, the training endeavours to provide comprehensive coverage of the relevant issues in this area and is designed to put participants in stressful situations, preparing them for worst-case scenarios. Essential classroom theory is complemented by simulations of real-life situations.
Who should take this course
The target group for this training is mission staff selected to be deployed to low/middle/high risk missions or recently deployed to such missions who have preferably already attended at least a general introductory course on crisis management operations, or have gained relevant experience in international field operations.
- This training has two primary objectives:
- To improve participants' knowledge of multiple threats present in hostile field environments and of ways and means of dealing with them in an effective manner;
- To rehearse and practice safety and security procedures according to specific threats.
