You will learn:

Comparison of international policy, state policy, and your organization’s policy

How to examine country profiles and prepare your staff

What is the First Response in HIM?

Who do you contact in media? Do you have a media strategy?

The Recovery stage

The training will also provide an interactive scenario for the participants. A situation will be provided and within the guidelines of your organization, you must work with members of diverse backgrounds and experience to successfully manage the hostage situation.

All sessions will be facilitated by a combination of HDFF trainers, as well as key professionals in the security and humanitarian sector.
