We are collaborating with the United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC) in co-designing a tool to analyse changes in settings of organised violence that is policy-relevant and important for the work of the UN and other international organisations on both the operational level (field offices) and strategic level (headquarters). The UNSSC is the primary provider of interagency training and learning for staff of the United Nations system. The overall objective is to promote UN inter-agency collaboration, increase the operational effectiveness of the UN system as a whole and equip UN staff with the required skills and competencies to face today’s global challenges in Leadership and Management, Peace and Security and Sustainable Development.
