How can local governments improve security in conflict-affected areas? What are the challenges and opportunities for promoting positive conflict transformation and the rule of law? And how can conflict and security assessments help ensure stability at the local level?

These questions and more will be the focus of the two-week training organized by The Hague Academy. The course will discuss approaches to improving local security in conflict-affected settings. Using case studies and a simulation exercise, you will discuss the drivers of conflict and learn how to conduct a comprehensive security plan in your community. A visit to the ICC will complement the training curriculum. Top experts include among others, Irma Specht, a specialist on community security and director of Transition International; Fulco van Deventer, deputy-director of the Human Security Collective; and Dr. Lyal Sunga, a renowned international human rights law expert.
