The aim of these training materials is to provide troop-contributing countries with a comprehensive training package that combines the Conceptual, Legal, and Operational Frameworks for specific type units. The STMs also mainstream relevant aspects of the Protection of Civilians into frameworks / material. The STMs include small exercises, as well as a larger more comprehensive scenario-based exercise, which can be run at the end of a course to strengthen participants’ understanding how to better operate in a UN Peacekeeping environment. The training packages are designed for application in both pre-deployment and in-mission training.

Target audience

The priority target audience of this STM package are military decision makers, staff officers, and tactical level unit leaders. However, leadership at all levels who supervises, supports and coordinates with the specific unit may benefit from this material.
