L'Institut de formation aux opérations de paix

L’Institut de formation aux opérations de paix (Peace Operations Training Institute, POTI) vise à offrir des cours de formation à distance sur les opérations de maintien de la paix, l’assistance humanitaire et les opérations de sécurité aux hommes et femmes travaillant à promouvoir la paix dans le monde .

Nous avons le plus d’expérience dans l’enseignement à distance sur le maintien de la paix. Nos anciens élèves servent l'intérêt de la paix dans le monde entier. Ils sont des soldats de la paix sur le terrain au sein des missions, des professeurs enseignant les futures générations, des diplomates, des officiels de haut niveau, et autres. Des milliers d’étudiants provenant de plus de 170 nations ont approfondi leurs connaissances avec l’Institut de formation aux opérations de paix.

Le format téléchargeable et autonome de nos cours permet l’étude des questions sur le maintien de la paix partout à travers le monde, et à n’importe quel moment. Nos programmes satisfaisent plusieurs besoins de formation, y compris la préparation pour le deploiement au sein d'une mission de maintien de la paix, l’accroissement de l’efficacité sur le terrain, le complément des formations en classe, et l’acquisition de connaissances supplémentaires sur le système de l’ONU.

L’Institut de formation aux opérations de paix est une institution caritative publique basée aux États Unis, du type 501(c)(3). Nous sommes une organisation à but non lucratif, gouvernée par un Conseil d’administration.

Reconnaissance du Comité spécial des Nations Unies sur les opérations de maintien de la paix

Our courses and programmes have been repeatedly welcomed by the United Nations Special Committee on Peacekeeping Operations (C-34). Its official recommendations for 2017, appearing in UN document A/71/19, indicate in paragraph 384 and 386:

384. The Special Committee welcomes technological platforms, including e-learning, which supplement traditional training methods and provide access to standardized training materials across a widely distributed population of military, police and civilian peacekeepers. In this regard, the Special Committee welcomes the development of peacekeeping e-learning courses by the Integrated Training Service. The Special Committee welcomes the free and multilingual delivery of e-learning courses on peacekeeping, such as those provided by the Peace Operations Training Institute, including the E-Learning for African Peacekeepers and E-Learning for Peacekeepers from Latin America and the Caribbean. The Special Committee also welcomes the integrated distance learning programmes provided directly to the peacekeeping missions by the Institute. The Special Committee fully supports the further development and delivery of such e-learning and training initiatives and encourages Member States to support them through voluntary financial contributions. The Special Committee therefore encourages the Department of Peacekeeping Operations to work with all interested parties to develop a coherent strategy for the delivery of economical and efficient United Nations endorsed e-learning in order to further enhance the effectiveness of peacekeeping.

386. The Special Committee underscores that, with regard to support for Member States, the Integrated Training Service should focus primarily on enhancing and building peacekeeping training, including capacity enhancement for mandate implementation, and that all United Nations entities engaged in training initiatives specifically or uniquely aimed at peacekeepers should coordinate these activities through the Service. The Special Committee urges the Department of Peacekeeping Operations and the Department of Field Support to continue to work with Member States, the University for Peace, UNITAR and the Peace Operations Training Institute, and other training partners, to provide support in peacekeeping training to Member States, improve the dissemination of training materials, including to the field, raise awareness of peacekeeping training initiatives and develop partnerships, and enhance strategic networking to help to match training resources to prioritized needs.
