CMC Finland is an implementing partner in Europe’s New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (ENTRi) Project that was created by the European Union’s Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace and is guided by the European Commission’s Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI), which is co-located with the European External Action Service. The project is funded by the European Commission.
ENTRi is a unique capacity building programme that was initiated in early 2011. The main focus lies on the preparation and training of civilians that are either going to, or already working in, crisis management missions worldwide. Such missions include those of the European Union (EU), the United Nations (UN), the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), and the African Union (AU), as well as other international crisis management missions.
The ENTRi project is coming to an end in May 2019 and new courses will not be offered. However, civilian crisis management experts are encouraged to utilize the possibilities that the ENTRi project still offers: off-the-shelf training packages are available on the ENTRi website, the project has compiled relevant e-learning courses on its website, it has created a pre-deployment checklist for selected experts and the handbook will support experts in preparing for interviews as well as with their work in the missions.
