Description and results


The project aims to improve the capacity of peacekeepers through large-scale e-learning programs. These self-paced e-learning courses are delivered at regional and national peacekeeping training centers prior to deployment, during deployment, and directly to individual peacekeepers. Project activities build on the previous Canada-funded projects and include: (1) designing and delivering e-learning peacekeeping courses to national and regional peacekeeping training centers throughout Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean and South Asia; (2) delivering specific online training on gender equality, and the role of women in conflict resolution; (3) translating six courses into French and three into Spanish or Arabic; (4) developing two new e-publications and updating the mobile application; and (5) providing the full peacekeeping training curriculum online, including instructions on human rights and international conflict resolution to military personnel, police, and civilians serving in all peacekeeping missions.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved effectiveness of women and men peacekeepers to perform their in-mission duties appropriately and in the application of the UN Security Council Resolutions on Women, Peace and Security (WPS); and (3) increased efficiency of peacekeeping training through the increased use of mobile e-learning training.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of April 2021 include: (1) over 90% of peacekeepers reported that they used the knowledge gained through Peace Operations Training Institute courses on deployments; (2) over 90% of students reported that their course covered topics related to gender equality in a clear and informative manner; and (3) over 22,000 individual students received training.
