ENTRi Handbook "In Control" - a handbook, designed to accompany civilian experts on their way through crisis management missions.
The handbook also contains practical information on a variety of issues that are common to working in a mission. From dealing with health and security challenges to technical information on radio operation, map reading, and four-wheel driving – the ENTRi handbook is a valuable companion.
