Challenges of Peace Support into the 21st Century

The Swedish National Defence College hosted the first international seminar in September 1997.

The objective of the project’s initial seminar was to engage an international group of experts to explore and identify more effective and legitimate ways of dealing with regional conflicts, bearing in mind the importance of good civil-military relations, the impact of information technology, the element of limited resources and the complexities related to integrating diverse national approaches in peace operations.

During the seminar the participants visited SWEDINT; the Swedish International Peacekeeping Training Centre, where presentations were focused on the training and education of officers, police and civilians for staff, commander and specialist positions in international missions.
