Crisis Management and Disaster Response Centre of Excellence (CMDR COE) and a team of BI UK Instructors from the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom are pleased to announce the Year 2023 iteration of the Building Integrity Principles for Presenters (BIPP) Course /Train–the-Trainers Course/, scheduled for the period 23 JAN - 26 JAN 2023.
Most crises (both inter-state and intra-stated rooted) have multi-dimensional causes and symptoms. Their management is operationalized through various stages, principles, tools and actors for crisis transformation. Apart from military officers, foreign policy makers and security experts, humanitarian and relief workers, as well as members of the business community are recognised as essential actors in the field of crisis management. History of armed conflicts and humanitarian crisis illustrates that vulnerable societies are susceptible of corruption. In an emergency situation the corruption consequences are amplified and have devastating effect on crisis resolution.
A Train-the-Trainer programme is aimed at training future civilian and military instructors in BI subject. This programme is organised back-to-back to the Defence Leadership in BI course. It starts with 3 days of training prior to the Defence Leadership in BI course and ends with an evaluation and debriefing session.
The course’s goal is to establish a pool of specialists trained on integrity building and anti-corruption measures. These specialists are going to provide training within their structures in order to support the anti-corruption efforts.
