Our civilian crisis management training courses provide civilian experts with necessary skills to operate
effectively in the ﬁeld. The courses enhance both the knowledge and the skills of civilian crisis
management. The programme components cover a variety of themes such as, cross-cultural awareness,
familiarisation with various actors and organisations, project management, knowledge of human rights
and security training.
In crisis management training, the recognition of real training needs is a perpetual challenge. Our
trainings aim at maximum conformity with the training requirement of the EU, UN and OSCE. The Finnish participation to Civilian Crisis Management and Peacebuilding operations
trainees are experts in their respective ﬁelds and thus training should focus only on those skills needed in
the missions. The understanding of mission environment and the nature of comprehensiveness in crisis

event. deployment of experts, as well as research and development. With all these activities combined, CMC Finland is an
international centre of expertise in civilian crisis management, peacebuilding and humanitarian response.
Our courses are tailored to meet the training needs and to simulate mission environment. Bringing
different experts to the same learning environment is one way of simulating the reality in the ﬁeld.
Participants are invited to courses from all ﬁelds of expertise needed in crises management missions.
This includes experts from the ﬁelds of civilian administration, police, customs, rule of law, human rights,
logistics, human resources etc.
The adaptation of the human security concept is one of the cross-cutting themes in our courses. Human
security focuses more on the safety of people and communities rather than the traditional notion of
security which focuses on the security of states in regards military threats. This approach brings a moral
philosophical aspect to training. All training emphasise understanding of other actors and the local
ownership. Human security principles are operationalised through mapping exercises, role plays and BASIC TRAININGS .............................................................................................4

BASIC TRAININGS The EU
Concept Core Course or European Union Police Ofﬁcer Courses are an
essential pre-requisite for anyone being deployed to a ﬁeld mission.
There is an ongoing need to run these courses on a regular basis, in order to build up the
pool of people available for future missions. The added value of the basic courses is to prepare
participants for the kind of multicultural working environment they will face on a mission.
These courses will provide participants with the basic knowledge and skills required on an
international peace mission, independent of the speciﬁc function they will fulﬁl as experts in
their own ﬁelds. The course modules are designed so as to enhance desirable personal attitudes,
stress the importance of active involvement of a host society, and promote a reﬂective and critical
approach to the complex issues of civilian crisis prevention and management. These are skills that
will be practiced in direct interaction with people when implementing concrete projects in the
ﬁeld. Participants will also be provided with an overall picture of the different speciﬁc functional
tasks needed in a mission and how they are interrelated, which shall demonstrate the need for
In addition, this course will contribute to the creation of a similar management culture among
future mission members, and a sense of common identity and purpose for EU mission support.
The course combines lectures, seminars, case studies, discussions in smaller groups, and extensive
ﬁeld training exercise with various simulations.
The selection of the course participants will be done in close cooperation with the CMC Finland’s
recruitment personnel. The applicants must:
- be ready and willing to participate in the civilian crisis management missions within one year
from the course
- have an educational and professional background suitable for civilian crisis management missions
- have relevant working experience of three years
- have a working knowledge of English;
- have a valid driving licence (category B);
- be physically and mentally in good health.
In addition to these police ofﬁcers must have working experience in police at least of eight years

SPECIALISED TRAINING ﬁeld to understand how their expertise will
need to be adapted for use in a post-conﬂict environment and the special considerations that
may apply to their particular area of work. In this way, experts in human rights, democratisation,
rule of law, DDR, media development or civil administration are able to focus on the concerns
relating to their area of expertise and most have found this of particular beneﬁt in preparing
themselves for a mission.
In addition to suitable profession personnel applying to specialisation courses should have
completed their basic courses or have mission experience from the civilian crisis management
missions. We also expect from the Finnish participants willingness to apply to missions in the
near future. Personnel already serving in the missions are encouraged to apply for specialisation
courses and thus deepen their understanding in their respective ﬁelds of expertise.
CMC Finland also sends personnel to equal trainings abroad.

16 Gender Training 17
09–11 February 2010 Kuopio, Finland
Why is it not enough to speak about human rights? Do we really need gender or is talking about gender
merely an attempt to be politically correct?
Ever since the adoption of the UNSCR 1325 in 2000, gender issues have gained an increasingly important
role in crisis management.
Finland promotes its own national action plan in regards to the implementation of UNSCR 1325 for
2008-2011. One explicit aim is to insure that all its seconded personnel has the necessary knowledge,
competence and skills to consider gender issues in every level of their work in a crisis management
operation. The CMC Gender Training is thus part of this bigger picture and a link in the achievement of
the goals of UNSCR 1325.
TARGET GROUP Applications are invited from all ﬁelds of expertise needed in crisis
management missions in Kosovo, such as: police, customs, borders,
civilian administration, rule of law, gender, human rights, media,
logistics, human resources information management, and military.
Applicants from the humanitarian ﬁeld are also welcome to apply. As
the course focuses exclusively on Kosovo, applicants should either be
in the mission already, or actively seek secondment to Kosovo.
AIM AND OBJECTIVES The main aim of the course is to promote an understanding of gender
equity, achieving gender balance and gender mainstreaming.
The overall objective is to provide practical tools for mission
personnel on how to spot expressions gender inequity, how to
address discrimination based on gender, as well as how to take into
consideration the gender implication of their own actions when
undertaking normal duties in civilian crisis management missions.
COURSE CONTENT The course will answer the following questions:
• What is meant by gender?
• How can a conﬂict impose new gender roles on the population?
• Does the International Community try to change gender roles? Why? How?
• Why so much talk about the UNSCR 1325?
• What can/shall the individual mission do to promote gender equity?

20 Advanced Police-Prosecutor 21
SPECIALISED TRAINING PROGRAMMES Coordination Training Programme
BACKGROUND The Government of Afghanistan made a request to the Government of Finland
to fund a pilot phase of the Advanced Police-Prosecutor Coordination Training
Programme in 2009-2011. Crisis Management Centre Finland (CMC Finland) is
the designated implementing agency of the Training Programme on behalf of the
Government of Finland. In conjunction with the Afghan Ministry of Interior (MoI)
and the Attorney General’s Ofﬁce (AGO), CMC Finland co-operates with EUPOL
Afghanistan (EUPOL AFG) in the implementation of the Training Programme.
OBJECTIVE OF THE The objective of the Training Programme is to enhance police-prosecutor
ABVANCED POLICE- coordination in Afghanistan. There is a recognised gap in current Rule
PROSECUTOR of Law training programs in terms of advanced, broadly based Police -
COORDINATION Prosecutor Coordination training. This programme aims to remedy this
TRAINING gap by bringing together a group of senior Afghan police ofﬁcers and
PROGRAMME prosecutors to examine and assess current coordination practices together
with the Finnish and EUPOL AFG police and prosecution experts. The
Training Programme takes place both in Afghanistan and Finland.
The main objective of the training modules organised in Finland is to familiarise
the participants with the practises and procedures of the Finnish Police-
Prosecutor coordination in order to provide incentives and tools to enhance the
coordination procedures and practises in pre-trial investigations in Afghanistan.
Enhanced coordination between the Police and Prosecutors in pre-trial criminal
investigation will, by promoting fairness and success in pre-trial investigations,
enhance serving of justice, including human rights, for all the Afghans.
THE POLICE- One of the main products of the Training Programme is an Afghan Police-Prosecutor
PROSECUTOR Coordination Manual, which will be drafted by the participants. Together with
COORDINATION the adjoining training manual this Manual will, once introduced and approved,
MANUAL strengthen the Police-Prosecutor coordination practices in Afghanistan. It will
also provide police-prosecutor coordination mentors with a handbook for
mentoring. Likewise, the Manual can be used as a study material in the Afghan
MoI and AGO training institutions as well as in University law faculties.
TRAINING PARTICIPANTS There are 20 participants in the programme from the Afghan MoI and AGO. In
addition, there are participants from the Supreme Court of Afghanistan, Ministry of
Justice (MoJ) and the Afghanistan Independent Bar Association (AIBA) bringing the
total number of participants to 23 in the pilot phase of the training programme.

22 Human Security Training Programme 23
The CMC Finland’s Human Security Training Programme aims to promote knowledge of the new
dimensions of security and train experts to apply the concept of human security in peacebuilding. The
Training Programme consists of the following ﬁve modules.
INTRODUCTORY LECTURE ON HUMAN SECURITY IN CORE AND SPECIALISATION COURSES
An Introductory Lecture on Human Security is provided in the CMC
Finland’s Civilian Crisis Management Core and Specialisation Courses.
The analytical aim is to lay ground for understanding how peacebuilding,
particularly crisis management, should be carried out. The practical
objective is to offer basic knowledge of the concept and its utility in
practise in peacebuilding. The lecture includes both theory and exercises.
TRAIN THE TRAINERS: APPLICATION OF HUMAN SECURITY IN PEACEBUILDING
The Train the Trainers: Application of Human Security in Peacebuilding
specialisation course aims at deepening the knowledge on
human security and providing several tools for practical work.
Each course focuses on a speciﬁc geographical area. The
learning method is a combination of theory and exercises.
TAILORED TRAININGS ON HUMAN SECURITY
The CMC Finland organises tailored trainings on human security
upon request. Such trainings may vary from one-day events
to a week-long intensive course. The content of the training
events are formulated in close cooperation with the client.
HUMAN SECURITY EVENTS
Occasional events on human security such as roundtables, workshops
and seminars are organised under the programme. The objective of such
events is to challenges policy makers and practitioners in peacebuilding,
particularly crisis management, to discuss security issues and raise
awareness of the concept and its utility in foreign and security policies.
HUMAN SECURITY PUBLICATIONS
Publications on human security are an essential component of the
Human Security Training Programme. They include seminar reports from
human security events and articles based on applied research in the
CMC Finland Yearbook. The reports and articles look at the concept
and particularly its application in practise from various perspectives
leaving thorough analysis of the concept to academic research. A
Human Security in Peacebuilding: Training Handbook ofﬁcially starts
the series of the CMC Finland’s human security related publications.
24 FRF-Training Programme 2010 25
A training programme is being developed and established in order to have a standardised Cold Conditions-
training module. The objective of the training courses is to assist other EU Civil Protection Mechanism
teams to enhance their capabilities in operating in cold conditions, to foster close cooperation with all
EU Mechanism teams and share the experiences of the Finnish teams in cold condition rescue operations.
The training programme consists of various courses, exercises
and capacity enhancement events, such as:
-ICT Module Refresher Courses
-Base Camp Module Refresher Courses
-Finn Rescue (FRF) Staff Management Courses
-Finn Rescue (FRF) Training of the Trainers Workshops

Centre of Expertise in Comprehensive Crisis
THE FINNISH CENTRE OF EXPERTISE IN Management was founded jointly by the Finnish
Defence Forces International Centre (FINCENT) and the Crisis Management Centre Finland
COMPREHENSIVE CRISIS MANAGEMENT (CMC Finland) in November 2008. The core task of the Finnish Centre of Expertise is to promote
understanding of the coordination, as well as comprehensiveness, of crisis management in the
context of national crisis management capacity building and preparedness, as well as crisis
management and peacebuilding missions. In addition, the Centre of Expertise aims to create a
clear framework for already existing co-operation between FINCENT and CMC Finland Training
The Finnish Centre of Expertise is based on the so called shared campus -principle between
FINCENT and CMC Finland, both of whom continue functioning as independent governmental
institutions. Consequently, this Finnish Centre of Expertise in Comprehensive Crisis Management
aims at developing common and joint training in crisis management, in addition to its other tasks,
which include research, publishing and seminar activities.
More information on the trainings is available at FINCENT and CMC Finland websites.
