Protection of Civilians

With violence increasing around the globe, the protection of civilians has become a cornerstone of United Nations peacekeeping mandates. The 2016 edition of Protection of Civilians explores the history of POC, its application in current events, and practical options for consideration for those undertaking this task. The course begins by exploring the POC concept and its legal basis in UN peacekeeping operations. Later lessons explore traditional and new threats to civilians, including extremist groups like ISIL/ISIS, sexual violence in armed conflict, and the protection of children. This updated edition incorporates the UN 2015 Policy on the Protection of Civilians in United Nations Peacekeeping and examines missions launched since 2012, including MINUSMA and MINUSCA. Seven lessons.

COURSE AUTHOR: Mr. Julian Harston is a retired Assistant Secretary-General to the United Nations who previously served as the Representative of the Secretary-General in Belgrade, Serbia in 2009, as well as the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for MINURSO, Western Sahara from 2007 to 2009.

La recrudescence des violences dans le monde fait de la protection des civils une pierre angulaire des mandats de maintien de la paix des Nations Unies. L’édition 2017 de la « Protection des civils » explore l’histoire de cette dernière, son application dans les évènements actuels et les options pratiques à examiner afin d’entreprendre cette tâche. Le cours commence par explorer le concept de protection des civils et sa base juridique dans les opérations de maintien de la paix des Nations Unies. Les leçons suivantes explorent les menaces traditionnelles ainsi que les nouvelles menaces, y compris les groupes extrémistes comme EEIS/ISIL, la violence sexuelle dans les conflits armés et la protection des enfants. Cette édition mise à jour intègre la Politique 2015 sur la protection des civils dans les opérations de maintien de la paix des Nations Unies et examine les missions lancées depuis 2012, y compris la MINUSMA et la MINUSCA. Sept leçons.
