Unarmed civilian protection (UCP) is a methodology for the direct protection of civilians, for violence reduction, and for supporting local peace infrastructures. This is an emerging discipline, currently practiced in areas of conflict such as Colombia, South Sudan, Palestine, the United States, Iraq, and the Mindanao region of the Philippines. The High-Level Independent Panel on United Nations Peace Operations (HIPPO) asserted that “Unarmed strategies must be at the forefront of UN efforts to protect civilians.”
The aim of this course is therefore to contribute to the common objectives of protecting civilians and keep peace. This is a non university credit, certificate course.
