International Investigation – Team Leader Course

While national law enforcement bodies have their own training courses to prepare individuals for the significant leap to the team leader level, very little training is available for those asked to lead investigations into human rights or international humanitarian law violations on the international level. Yet good investigation team leadership is crucial to good investigations.  The course is aimed at both human rights investigators and international law enforcement, both those currently at the team leader level and those for whom a leadership role is the next step. Recognising that skills and experience levels will vary, it will introduce or reinforce basic concepts and techniques of leadership and team management, as well as operational decision-making, within an international investigation environment. The primary methodology, as with all IICI courses, is a mixture of formal instruction, reinforced with realistic exercises.

Examples of modules:

· Leadership concepts

· Communication skills & investigation team management

· Investigation planning

· Mission planning

· Creating productive relationships with legal advisers

· Crisis management

· Conflict management

· Stress management

· Ethics

· Decision-making

The training was a kind of display of a valid competence and yet, in quite a short time, you managed to accomplish a warm and true
relationship with each and every trainee.
