Emerging Dynamics in Peace Support Operations in Africa
In collaboration with GIZ, the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) and the Institute for Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) will convene a workshop on “Emerging Dynamics in Peace Operations in Africa” on 7 September 2021 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The workshop will specifically engage emerging topics on Humanitarian, Development and Peace (HDP) Nexus as well as Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Peace Support Operations (MHPSS) in contexts of peace operations in Africa. The workshop aims to deepen the understanding of the HDP Nexus and MHPSS and the implemental role of national and regional actors. The workshop ensures further discussion of two baseline reports on the HDP Nexus as well as MHPSS in peace operations contexts in Africa. In line with these reports, two tailor-made training curricula have been piloted at the KAIPTC including “Managing HDP Nexus in conflict and post-conflict settings in Africa” as well as the “Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Peace Support Operations (MHPSS)”.
