    HEALTH SYSTEMS THROUGH CONFLICT AND RECOVERY (Intensive Course) – 2015

    Location: Pisa, Italy

    Background and nature of the course

    The volatility and complexity of conflict and post-conflict scenarios pose unprecedented challenges to health workers – both national and international – who are called to rehabilitate the physical and human health infrastructures. Lack of properly prepared professionals in this field has often resulted in reconstruction efforts characterized by weak analysis, little understanding, inadequate planning and poor implementation.

    This Training Course intends to fill this gap as it aims to:

    • Introduce participants to the main features of conflict-ridden environments;
    • Identify and discuss the main features of health systems during protracted crises and recovery processes, and the most common distortions plaguing healthcare provision.
    • Analyse and reflect upon the challenges faced by health actors in countries affected or recovering from a conflict;
    • Introduce participants to recovery processes, to the dangers they pose and to the opportunities they provide for correcting long-standing distortions and creating more efficient and fair health systems;
    • Familiarize participants with the existing literature in this field and stimulate their interest in conducting further research.

    Methodologies

    The Course is taught in English. It is intensive in nature and demands from participants a pro-active attitude. Interaction with the trainers is encouraged through the use of case studies, practical exercises and by devoting ample space to testimonies and reflections drawn from the personal experience of trainers and trainees.

    For further info on aims, contents, and methodologies please check the Course brochure.

    Who can apply

    The Course is mainly intended for health professionals working in the field, but is also open to other professionals working in (or preparing to join) development co-operation or humanitarian assistance programmes. Applicants must have a university degree in a health-related field or the equivalent of 3 years of relevant working experience. They must have a sound working knowledge of English.

    Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT)

    Background of the Course

    Hostile environment awareness plays an important role in the effectiveness and impact of crisis management missions; it is also a chief responsibility that each seconding or contracting actor has vis-à-vis its deployed personnel (“duty of care”), so as to further address the issue of their protection while operating in high risk operational theaters.

    Hostile environment awareness is essential to coping with internal and external security threats on the ground and is conducive to: a) enhancing the resilience of personnel when working in hazardous environments; b) increasing the understanding of proactive security and of basic field measures; c) providing personnel with the basic tools and techniques needed to avoid potentially dangerous situations or to cope adequately with actual endangering ones in the field.

    This course has been designed and developed jointly by the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and the Carabinieri Corps General Headquarters, precisely with the aim to address such needs.

    The course is organized under the patronage of Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs

    ENTRI Certification

    This is the first HEAT course to have obtained the “C3MC” label“ which proves that the Course is coherent with the minimum standards requested by ENTRI/EU. Through the certification process, ENTRi aims at ensuring harmonisation of training standards among training providers working on civilian crisis management training.

    Training Objectives & Modules

    HEAT is an intensive 40-hour course that aims at training professionals to deal effectively with risk-associated and emergency/critical situations while deployed in hostile environments abroad. The training is expected to improve participants’ understanding of the minimum behavioural field requirements when working as a team members of an international field operation irrespective of their national or professional background. The course has two primary objectives:

    1. To improve participants’ knowledge of multiple threats present in hostile field environments and of ways and means of dealing with them in an effective manner;
    2. To rehearse and practice safety and security procedures according to specific threats.

    The Course content is clustered in five modules:

    Module I - EU personnel deployed in hostile environments

    Module II - Situational training exercise (STX)

    Module III - Medical training: health maintenance on mission

    Module IV - Orientation , communication s & 4-wheel drive

    Module V - Field training exercise (FTX)

    The 2nd Mobile Brigade of Carabinieri Corps acts through one of its special units as implementing partner during the outdoor role playing sessions.

    Methodology

    The Course, in addition to general background lectures, focuses on operational procedures and practice. Participants are tested through various scenarios, advanced role-playing sessions and simulation exercises. There is ample use of specific case study material, outdoor activities and extensive reference is made to the field experiences of both lectures and participants.

    Target Group

    The target group for this training is mission staff selected to be deployed to low/middle/high risk missions or recently deployed to such missions who have preferably already attended at least a general introductory course on crisis management operations or have at least gained relevant experience in international field operations.

    Teaching Staff & Director

    Professor Andrea de Guttry (Scuola Sant’Anna) and the Commander of the 1st Carabinieri Paratrooper Regiment “Tuscania” are the Co-Directors of the Course. Lecturers and trainers are mainly from the 1st Paratrooper Regiment “Tuscania”, the unique Special Operations Force of Carabinieri Corps, currently engaged in critical countries and high risk operational theatres all over the world.

    The Scuola Superiore Sant’ Anna and the Institute of Law, Politics and Development are accepting proposals for the International AgLaw Colloquium on Agri-Food and Environmental Regulatory Agenda in Regional Trade Agreements: Legal Implications and Trends on October 20-21, 2016. Submission forms are due on May 16, 2016 while the paper draft deadline is September 25, 2016. For more details, please see the complete call.

    The AgLaw Colloquium is intended to be an opportunity for early-career researchers (Ph.D. candidates and post-docs) to present and discuss their results and methodological approaches in a supportive environment. It is inspired by the wish to share on-going analysis, questions and exploration fields in agricultural law from a global perspective. Based on the feedback received from the 2015 edition, the AgLaw Colloquium represents a key opportunity to bring scholars together from all over the world and to build a network of young researchers interested in the legal aspects of the agriculture, food and the environment.

    2016 THEME

    Regional trade agreements (RTAs) have been regarded as an important alternative to multilateralism in the last decade. More recently the scale and scope of most of these agreements have been eclipsed by the level of ambition of a number of new ‘mega-regional’ negotiations (e.g. TTIP, TPP, RCEP, CFTA), which have the potential to significantly reshape the global trade landscape. These so-called mega-RTAs are deep integration partnerships between countries or regions with a major share of world trade and foreign direct investments. In this integration the emphasis is on the quest for regulatory compatibility. Indeed, several regional agreements have moved beyond border measures to include deeper forms of rules and institutions.

    Agriculture is one of the main areas in which parties to these talks are seeking to achieve mutual concessions. The 2016 AgLaw Colloquium is aimed at investigatingthe multiple effects of the current developments in the international trade system on the agri-food sector. Important legal implications may arise from the introduction of additional frameworks in the rules that countries follow to ensure food safety, animal and plant health, and environmental protection. They may have broader systemic consequences if the new regulatory frameworks come to be seen as establishing standards and norms which become benchmarks for subsequent negotiations, including those in the multilateral trading system.

    We welcome papers dealing with legal issues on agricultural and environmental aspects of RTAs and mega-RTAs; the role of agri-food and environmental issues within the new framework of international trade and investments, as well as the potential shape of the global regulatory system and the regional (such as EU) legislation; how rules and policies on agri-food trade could affect global food security, food safety, rural development and environmental sustainability.

    FEE

    A contribution of 100 euro for coffee breaks, lunches and dinner is requested from all selected authors. Further details regarding the schedule, events, lodging, and transportation will be posted on the website as soon as they are available. Participants will be responsible for their transportation and accommodation costs.


    How to register:

    The psychosocial approach responds to the threats brought by disruptive events, or predicaments of life to the notion of individual, group and collective identity. For this reason said approach proves especially useful in situations where individual, group and community identity and roles are questioned, challenged, annihilated, in need for reconstruction-readjustment, as is the case of migration and displacement forced by wars, disasters, collective socioeconomic vulnerabilities, and return. That is why psychosocial activities have become an indispensible component of humanitarian responses to emergency displacement.

    Yet, a non-harmonized approach to and understanding of psychosocial support tend to characterize those interventions.

    The focus of the Course is on providing a given frame of understanding of the psychosocial dimension of displacement and crisis-affected societies, while presenting harmonized ethics, approaches and tools associated with psychosocial support.


    How to register:

    The Course is open to psychologists, social workers, educators-teachers, medical doctors and psychiatrists, nurses, applied artists, humanitarian workers, emergency experts, development workers or similar, who meet the following minimum requirements:

    Description

    Millions of people do not have access to health care, because health systems in many countries are either non-existent or dramatically failing. Most of them live in areas chronically affected by violent conflict or slowly re-emerging from it.

    The volatility and complexity of conflict and post-conflict contexts pose daunting challenges to health workers – both national and international – who are called to rehabilitate derelict health structures. Lack of properly prepared professionals in this field has often resulted in reconstruction efforts characterized by weak analysis, little understanding, inadequate planning and poor implementation. This training programme intends to alleviate this gap.

    The Course, held for the first time in 2005, has evolved substantially since then. It is actively kept in progress, by constantly updating its contents, introducing new study topics and materials, and inviting new experienced lecturers.

    • Introduce participants to the main features of conflict-ridden environments;
    • Identify and discuss the main features of health systems during protracted crises and recovery processes, and the most common distortions plaguing healthcare provision;
    • Analyse and reflect upon the challenges faced by health actors in countries affected or recovering from a conflict;
    • Introduce participants to recovery processes, to the dangers they pose and to the opportunities they provide for correcting long-standing distortions and creating more efficient and fair health systems;
    • Familiarize participants with the literature existing in this field and stimulate their interest in conducting further research.

    Teaching methods

    The Course is taught in English. It is intensive in nature and demands from participants a pro-active attitude. Interaction with the trainers is encouraged through the use of case studies and practical exercises. Ample space is devoted to testimonies and reflections drawn from the personal experience of trainers and trainees.

    Course programme

    The Course content is updated and modified every year. These are some of the main topics regularly discussed:

    • The conflict environment; international and humanitarian law; the aid system and its politics; aid management;
    • Systems thinking applied to management practice, including information analysis;
    • Communicable diseases in distressed health systems;
    • Health policy analysis, planning and financing in troubled health sectors;
    • Health-related resources: personnel, medicines, facilities, and their management;
    • Contributing to the recovery of disrupted health sectors, through analysis, research, negotiation, appraisal of options, and forecasting.

    Description, learning objectives and teaching methods

    The psychosocial approach responds to the threats brought by disruptive events, or predicaments of life to the notion of individual, group and collective identity. For this reason said approach proves especially useful in situations where individual, group and community identity and roles are questioned, challenged, annihilated, in need for reconstruction-readjustment, as is the case of migration and displacement forced by wars, disasters, collective socioeconomic vulnerabilities, and return. That is why psychosocial activities have become an indispensable component of humanitarian responses to emergency displacement.

    Yet, a non-harmonized approach to and understanding of psychosocial support tend to characterize those interventions.

    The course will provide a given frame of understanding of the psychosocial dimension of migration, displacement and crisis-affected societies, as well as of the processes within the migration cycle of vulnerable groups, all while presenting harmonized ethics, approaches and tools associated with psychosocial support.

    The course will enable participants to acknowledge the complexity of MHPSS Interventions in crisis situations or during the migration process, conceptualize holistic responses, understand the interrelation of the different sectorial responses and gain advanced specific knowledge in each sector of intervention.
