Justice Rapid Response (JRR) will be holding a training course on Monitoring and Investigating Conflict-related Violations Involving Children, in Jordan, from 21 to 31 August 2016. The courses will be held in partnership with the Institute for International Criminal Investigations (IICI) and the Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative (Dallaire Initiative), at the kind invitation of the Judicial Institute of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (JIJ). The course is made possible thanks to generous contributions from the Governments of Denmark, Canada and Liechtenstein as well as DHX Media of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
We encourage nominations from criminal justice experts for this upcoming training course.
This 10-day training course is specifically tailored for criminal justice professionals with experience in dealing with crimes involving children, mainly from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, to prepare these professionals for investigations involving multi-disciplinary, diverse monitoring and investigative teams that can be deployed rapidly and with short reporting deadlines.
Candidates who successfully complete the training course become eligible for certification onto the JRR roster, in order to be available to assist States, as well as the United Nations and other international institutions with the jurisdiction to carry out investigations into such crimes.
We encourage nominations from professionals with relevant expertise as specified in the Call for Nominations, and who are willing and could be made available for short-term international deployments at short notice.
Deadline for nominations is 6 May 2016.
