Kosovo (EULEX) Pre Deployment Course, organised between 13 and 17 February 2012, is addressed at experts selected to be deployed within missions conducted by the EU, OSCE or UN in Kosovo.
The course precisely aims at fostering a common level of knowledge and at creating similar expectations among mission members, which in turn facilitates integration and coherence of the missions.
This will be achieved specifically by building a common understanding among future mission members of:
• The EU Crisis Management System.
• Kosovo's history and distinctive political and cultural features.
• The EULEX Mission in Kosovo, its structure, components and methods of work.
• International presence in Kosovo: background, key actors and coordination systems.
• Practical field related issues.
By focusing on mission-specific and function-specific issues the course aims to equip the trainees with the essential knowledge and information necessary to be active mission and team members and to operate smoothly in the respective area of assignment. The training will be organised in a highly interactive manner with two round tables, role plays, simulation and several case studies in which trainees will be able to acquire new knowledge and skills. The added value of the training is first hand information from Kosovo and EULEX representatives as well as networking possibilities, which boost their future work in the mission.
Training starts on Monday, 13 February with lunch and finishes on Friday, 17 February after lunch. Classes will be held at Jable Castle.
Deadline: 06.02.2012; applications that will arrive later than 06 February will be regarded if free places will still be available at the course. The organisers encourage early registration in order to provide better service for the participants!
