|Non-traditional Military Training for Canadian
Peacekeepers examines the training needs of professional peacekeepers in
the 1990s. Over the years, Canada has contributed huge amounts of financial
support and personnel to United Nations peacekeeping missions. While our
peacekeeping endeavors have traditionally been a source of national pride, the
events in Somalia cast a shadow over the Canadian peacekeeping record. This
study, prepared for the Commission of Inquiry, asserts that the skills acquired
through training undertaken by the Canadian forces are inadequate to prepare
troops for the requirements of modern-day peacekeeping. The authors suggest
ways in which training must be adapted, and offer options for improvement in
order for Canada to have the best peacekeeping forces possible.
