The aim of these training materials is to provide troop-contributing countries with a comprehensive training package that combines the Conceptual, Legal, and Operational Frameworks for specific type units. The STMs also mainstreams relevant aspects of the Protection of Civilians into frameworks / material. The STM includes small exercises, as well as, a larger more comprehensive scenario-based exercise, which can be run at the end of a course to strengthen participants’ understanding how better to operate in a UN Peacekeeping environment. The training packages are designed for application in both pre-deployment and in-mission training.
The priority target audience of this STM package are military decision makers, staff officers, and tactical level unit leaders. However, leadership at all levels that supervise, support and coordinate with the specific unit may benefit from this material.
Structure of the training material
The package is constructed in three modules:
Module 1: Conceptual Framework
Module 2: Legal Framework
Module 3: Operational Framework
