OSCE – First Live-Simulation Training Course

OSCE – First Live-Simulation Training Course

The Observatory on Security and CBRNe Defence – Osdife is pleased to announce to its network that the application procedure for the First Live-Simulation Training Course (14-18 Nov. 2016) is now open.

The OSCE region is facing major movements of people triggered by on-going conflicts, general instability and a lack of economic opportunities in neighbouring regions. Those “mixed-migration flows” are comprised of refugees and economic migrants who are highly vulnerable to mistreatment and human trafficking.

Against this backdrop, OSCE has developed the project “Combating Human Trafficking along Migration Routes” and, under these activities, it is organizing, supported by  the Observatory on Security and CBRNe Defence, the First Live-Simulation Training Course, which include the following key learning objectives:

  • define/use key indicators for identifying human trafficking victims among mixed groups of people;
  • apply a multi-agency and human rights-based approach in detecting human trafficking and identifying victims;
  • apply standard operating procedures related to victims’ assistance and support;
  • Make use of financial investigations as well as international legal and police co-operation.

During the first two days, training activities will focus on theoretical, methodological and technical issues related to anti-trafficking action (some of the theoretical lessons provided to the participants will include, for example, “Transnational, National and Local Referral Mechanisms: Standard Operating Procedures” and “Psychological Support to Victims”). The following three days will be dedicated to a live-simulation when trainees will be directly involved and asked to choose the proper response to deal with potential scenarios, according to their role and responsibilities.

The application deadline is 25 September 2016, and all related information will be available at the following link http://www.osce.org/projects/cthblivex
