A two day training for the staff of the MIA Academy and the Military Institute has been conducted. The training was aimed at finalizing special training programs within the agenda “Women, peace and security in the context of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325”.
The main objective of the training is inclusion of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 in the professional education process for the police officers as well as servicemen of the Armed Forces of the Kyrgyz Republic.
During the training participants received information on the fundamental principles of the Resolution 1325, the relevant Action Plan, international legal provisions and the national policy for ensuring security of women and girls in armed conflicts, as well as participation of women in the peacebuilding process and post-conflict development.
“I enjoyed the training very much and liked the approach of the trainers who provided case studies for our better understanding. I have reconsidered the role of women in the society and now believe that Kyrgyzstan, having committed itself to implement the Resolution 1325 should introduce measures to protect the rights of women, especially in conflict situations,” - told Abbas Narimov, participant of the training.
Within the frameworks of discussion, the participants reviewed organizational and methodological approaches towards development of programs to be included in the professional training process of the police officers as well as servicemen of the Armed Forces of the Kyrgyz Republic.
For the purpose of capacity building the staff of the MIA Academy and the Military Institute will be trained in methodological and didactic tools to be used in the process of delivering developed training programs.
The training was conducted within the framework of the Project “Improvement of the rule of law and access to justice for sustainable peace” with the financial support of the UN Peace Building Fund.
