dc.description.abstractSince the Security Council first established protection of civilians (POC) as an explicit mandate in 1999, peacekeeping has evolved significantly, growing both in size and complexity. During this period, POC has continuously gained in prominence and today ranks as the priority mandate in a number of peacekeeping operations. While POC has sometimes become the yardstick against which the success of mission is measured, it is arguably also the most challenging mandate to implement.en
dc.description.abstractThe Department of Peacekeeping Operations and the Department of Field Support have developed a suite of training packages to prepare peacekeepers for their deployment in missions. Amongst these packages are separate Specialized Training Materials on POC, Child Protection and Conflict-Related Sexual Violence. The in-depth examination of these core protection tasks in UN peacekeeping is necessary to train personnel, and in particular those personnel with specialist protection functions, on effective mandate implementation in the field.en
dc.description.abstractNevertheless, experience has also shown that these protection tasks, despite their distinct nature, generate significant overlap. This is particularly true at the tactical level, where the assessment of protection threats, as well as the planning for and response to a complex protection crisis, is likely to simultaneously involve elements from the POC, Child Protection and Conflict-Related Sexual Violence realms. In order to reflect these realities, and prepare peacekeepers for the multi-dimensional realities on the ground, this training package aims to demonstrate the complex linkages between protection tasks, and provide training guidance on how to prevent, deter and respond to interrelated threats.en
