Dr. Langholtz in Bangladesh 28-31 October for 2013 Peacekeeping Training Centre Meeting

Published: 10-28-13

The Executive Director of POTI, Dr. Harvey Langholtz, is in Bangladesh 28-31 October for the annual meeting of the International Association of Peacekeeping Training Centres (IAPTC). The Bangladesh Institute of Peace Support Operations Training Centre (BIPSOT) is the host of this year's IAPTC conference. The theme of the meeting is 'Coping with Change: Leveraging Regional Education and Training Capabilities for Effective Multidimensional Peace Operations.

Dr. Langholtz and other peacekeeping training centre directors will use this conference as an opportunity to share experiences and discuss challenges and best practices in peacekeeping training.  This year's theme provides a starting point for participants to seek ways to minimize the duplication of training efforts, seek shared responsibility, and perhaps lead to thematic specialization among centres.

All of us at POTI wish the 2013 IAPTC participants well as they gather in Bangladesh.
