NATO SFA COE participated in the 2020 virtual BI ADC



The NATO SFA COE Legad and the E&T Branch participated in the 2020 virtual Building Integrity Annual Discipline Conference organized by the Centre for the Integrity in the Defence Sector (CIDS) and the International Staff (IS) on the 14th of October.
The Conference started with the address of Dr. Gerlinde Niehus, NATO’s Defence Institution and Capacity Building Deputy Director, who welcomed the participants and thanked everyone for taking the time to attend the online conference, since conditions continue to prevent in-person meetings.

The event, which gathered 44 experts from the NATO Command Structure, the NATO Force Structure and other International Organizations, gave the organizers the opportunity to illustrate the BI Policy Developments and the support received from the Partners, as well as the strong and trusted network created.
“Good governance and Building Integrity in the defence and security sector” and the “BI in Operation Handbook” were illustrated as milestones of the BI program.
A summary of courses divided into the various NATO Disciplines and included in the NATO ETOC (Education and Training Opportunity Catalogue) was provided. In this regard, the NATO SFA COE is giving its support to design the table of contents of the new NATO Advisory Course, which is included under the BI discipline and addressed to ministerial/institution’s advisors in support of NATO deployed training and capacity building activities. Furthermore, NATO SFA COE is creating some useful publications for the course attendees; they will be focused on important topics such as the respect of the Rule of Law and Good Governance in crisis zone and offering best practises and tools for advisors.
NATO SFA COE’s SMEs emphasised the importance of BI in SFA activities and how the signature of the Memorandum of Cooperation by the COE with the Defence Institution and Capacity Building (DICB) Directorate in 2019 gave impetus to the NATOSFACOE/DICB cooperation, recognizing further potential synergies in their respective working areas.
