Last July 6, John Packer, HRREC Director, contributed to the 2015 UNITAR Fellowship Programme on Peacemaking and Preventive Diplomacy held in Oslo. Professor Packer has been contributing to the programme for most of its 21 years, during which some 820 senior officials have been trained. They are coming from across the United Nations, its specialized agencies, other international governmental organizations (IGOs) as well as governmental representatives from around the world. This year the programme brought together 43 officials with a dozen experts. It offers a highly tailored training aimed at senior officials engaged in usually complex multilateral conflict situations.
