Today's UN and AU peace support operations lean on intelligence as a pivotal component in achieving mission success.
From planning to decision-making, mission personnel ought to be well-equipped with intelligence-based skills that will inform their commanders at all levels.
Owing to this and the dynamic nature of conflict, a curriculum review board has been convened to re-examine the UN Military Peacekeeping Intelligence (UNMPKI) Training of Trainers Course.
The board comprises MPKI subject matter experts, the course's lead facilitators, and IPSTC's Peace and Security Research Department, who are the Chair of the board.
The week-long review board will look to reassess the course's curriculum and ensure it builds capacity for military intelligence cells beyond the basic training they receive for peace support operations. This, in turn, will enhance the mission personnel's situational awareness and enable effective decision-making for their protection, and the protection of civilians.
