ENTRi – Europe’s New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management

Concept

Europe’s New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (ENTRi) is a unique capacity-building program that was initiated in early 2011. The project is funded by the European Commission (90%) and co-funded by its 12 implementing partners under the lead of the Center for International Peace Operations (ZIF) in Berlin. The third phase of the project, which lasts from June 2016 to Mai 2019, is funded with a total of 2.22 million Euros. The implementing partners are from different Member States of the European Union and Switzerland.

With the inception of its third project phase at the beginning of June 2016, ENTRi continues to broaden its scope of activities geared towards improving human security in crisis-prone areas where crisis management missions are deployed.  The project activities include the harmonisation and delivery of training for civilian personnel in international crisis management missions and aims at better enabling staff in EU, UN, AU and other crisis management and stabilisation-type missions („crisis management missions“) to work in an efficient, effective and sustainable manner in order to achieve their missions‘ mandates.
Over the course of the next three years, the consortium of 12 training institutions will offer seven specialization courses, four technologically enhanced training modules and six training of trainers courses to participants from different international organisations and peace operations. Courses cover theory and practice to align specific course content with regional contexts. In addition to the delivery of trainings, the project focuses on the certification of courses to standardise the overall quality of training provided within European training institutions.  New to the third Phase of ENTRi is the development of elaborate training packages to serve as a kind of tool-kit that offers trainers in missions and with training institutes, a choice on course content and training methodologies.  Find more information on the ENTRi website.
