  • DFTC Institute of Peace Support & Leadership

    The feasibility study has gone to tender.

    Rumour mill has the whole of the East side handed over and knocked, doubt that they are going to do that with the €10m in capital funding that has been allocated to it!

    They expect to get philanthropic/PPP/other sources of funding.

    It isn't intended to run internally accredited degrees/diplomas but to focus on short top end training courses.

    Strategically it will seek to develop leadership (consensus?) to address international security challenges and act as a platform to reflect on same.

    Tactically it will run professional courses for PSOs.

    In addition, it will seek to facilitate conflict resolution

    That's gonnna be interesting. Will mean a major capital investment in relocating the existing units to the other side of the camp then?

      The ballhop is that the east side will relocate to the west side and that the IPSL will be built there. Given a €10 million budget I don't think that is realistic (especially considering 1 block is currently being refurbished and the Tenders are in for another 2).

      The other ballhop is a load of officer Accomodiation on the east side.

      The other part of it is they will have to man it, UNTSI is a very small institution with a handful of staff.

        Are they looking to partner with any civilian academic institutions? I can imagine any number would love to Borg the DF UN expertise into their own faculties.

          That's a key element not decide which one(s) yet.

          The College is already involved with Maynooth and Carlow

                Sounds nice, but as the engagement wears on things can fall apart. Just ask any officer / eod-type who has passed through Shrivenham and their 'Academic Provider' issues

                  Very close links with NUI Maynooth for JCSC, SCSC and other courses (and many others courses across all corps with Carlow IT)

                    Didn't realise Ireland had it's own JCSC, SCSC courses. I presumed the DF sent them abroad for it.

                        We have on occasion sent individuals to the UK and US in the past (possibly also France and Germany not 100%).

                        About the C&S Sch (who run the SCSC) - http://www.military.ie/education-hq/...-staff-school/
                        About the Inf Sch (OTW run the JCSC) - http://www.military.ie/education-hq/...fantry-school/

                        There are often international students on the SCSC and has included US and Germans.

                            Why don’t they apply for EU Defence Fund (or similar) money?

                            Less controversial than pooling & sharing kit and the neutrality argument
