Integrated Civilian- Military Co-ordination (ICIMIC) Pilot Course

Course Outline

The Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre will offer a two week course on Integrated Civilian – Military Coordination (ICIMIC) from 30th October to 10th November 2017 to limited number of civilian mission staff, police, civil society actors and military participants. This Integrated Civilian- Military Coordination course reflects the international attempt at moving towards integration in the peacekeeping environment and the emergency humanitarian relief, as well as the humanitarian development and assisted integrated missions. This ties in to the “4th generation peacekeeping” of the integrated peace support operations. The focus of the course therefore is to create the understanding of the various mission components and the humanitarian actors in mission, their mandates, structure, activities, liaison fora and the relevant responsibilities when operating in an integrated mission environment.

 

Course Aim

The aim of the course is to train peacekeepers and the civilian mission staff in civilian – military coordination and cooperation principles operating in an integrated mission environment. This is to enhance their capacity for effective management of relief and humanitarian missions.
