Launching our new webinar series: Improving Practice

We are excited to announce the launch of a new webinar series. With these series, our  experts from all over the globe, will share their expertise on conflict prevention and peacebuilding, focusing specifically on trainings in this field.

The Improving Practice Webinar Series is a great opportunity to learn from our experts, to hear more about interesting case studies and to familiarise yourself with GPPAC tools.

Within GPPAC, one of our core activities is capacity-building. Through these webinars, we aim to increase the ability of our members and other civil society organisations working on conflict prevention issues. Each webinar is tailored by the webinar host, but in general, the webinar consists of a general presentation followed by an interactive discussion.

The first webinar: "Community policing through a Human Security approach"

Creating an environment where Human Security thrives depends  on developing multi-stakeholder processes (MSP) that address the insecurities of individuals and communities. For these MSP to be effective and sustainable they must include persons most impacted by the insecurity. Yet there is often a gap in communications, coordination and planning between the security sector and civilians. This webinar will discuss best practices in MSP design, and present two  case studies of community policing and security sector engagement, which aim to contribute to sustainable human security for all. One of the case studies will focus on women, who were trained in human security, media and nonviolence. 

Who can participate? This webinar series is  open for anyone interested.

What language will the webinars be delivered in? Most webinars will be delivered English, unless otherwise noted on the webinar summary.

What technology do I need to be able to view the webinar? We will be using Zoom for the webinar.

How do I register to the webinar? To view the webinars, you must first register here. This is free.

Date & time: 19th of June, from 1 to 2 pm Amsterdam time, 7AM-8Am Eastern Standard time
