First training of Peace Operations Training Centre (POTC)

Gender equality and gender mainstreaming in peace operations and missions


Peacekeeping Operations Training Centre that is operating within CEP is happy to announce its first training dedicated to an important cross-cutting topic that was identified as a need by all three founding ministries – Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia – Gender equality and gender mainstreaming in peace operations and missions. Training is primarily organized as an opportunity to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 1325 United Nations Security Council Resolution on Women, Peace and Security and 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration that was adopted at the Fourth World Conference on Women in 1995.

Pilot POTC training will be organized for experts who want to join international peace operation or mission, primarily for public servants from ministries of defence, internal and foreign affairs. Training is currently planned to be organized in a hybrid manner – with some participants and trainers present at POTC premises, while others will be welcome to join training digitally. Some trainers from abroad will join us digitally as well. All measures and suggestions to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 will be strictly respected.

Training on Gender equality and gender mainstreaming in peace operations and missions will be organized on 24 – 25 November 2020 and will conclude on 26 November with the regional expert meeting. The main objective of the meeting is to share best practices and to hear how 13 countries in the region are implementing the principles of the UN SC 1325 resolution and Beijing declaration into their defence policies.


Anyone interested in the training is welcome to join the training online.
