The Hague Academy for Local Governance has announced a Course on “Conflict, Rule of Law and Local Security” which will take place in The Hague from 26 October to 6 November 2020.
How can local governments improve security in conflict-affected areas? What challenges affect the local government’s ability to promote the rule of law? And how will conducting a thorough conflict and security assessment help ensure stability at the local level? This course will teach applicants about the underlying principles of community security and how best to apply its basic components.
In this training, applicants will gain specific knowledge, tailored approaches and practical tools to help you conduct a thorough conflict and security analyses.
