Europe’s New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (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.

  •            ENTRi II Final Narrative Report

    On the 31st of May 2016 ENTRi II came to an end after starting on the 1st of April 2013. During this highly fruitful second phase ENTRi successfully implemented 44 courses, training 994 participants of over 80 different nationalities and representatives of various European and international organisations. Other highlights and more details can be found in the Final Narrative Report here and the Annex here

  • A joint conference on the Inter-Operability Between Police and Civilian Training in the Context of Crisis Management Missions in cooperation between ENTRi and the European Union Police Services Training (EUPST) was held from 18-20 November 2015 in The Hague, Netherlands.

    Hosted by the Dutch Ministry of Defence, the conference marked the kick-off of EUPST II and the future cooperation between ENTRi and EUPST. Both projects are key instruments in the European training architecture for crisis management missions promoting peace and stability. The conference aimed to bring together European stakeholders involved in pre-mission training for both civilian and police personnel and focused on issues of mutual interest to civilian and police training providers in order to identify areas for increased synergy and cooperation. Results of the conference will feed into the implementation of both projects, further EU-level policy-making, and training developments by individual stakeholders.

    The event can also be found on the EUPST website here.
