Conference report ‘Contributing to Human Security through training’ available now
On December 3, 2019, PAX brought together international training experts and policy makers to reflect on best practices and pitfalls of international contributions to training with the explicit aim to discuss and suggest recommendations to the Dutch training efforts. The PoC department of PAX initiated this event as part of its partnership with the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
After an opening by Marriët Schuurman (Director Stability and Humanitarian Aid (DSH), the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and a keynote speech by Major General Patrick Cammaert (Ret.), international training experts and civil and military participants engaged in a mix of plenary and breakout sessions.
Dutch participants consisted of training specialists from the Netherlands Ministries of Defense and Foreign Affairs and policy makers relevant to decision making for Dutch contributions. International participants consisted of a mix of NATO, UN and EU practitioners and policy makers.
