The United Nations have been and are deploying military observers to peace missions all over the world for several decades. Internationally certified training centers with recognized courses are required to adequately prepare the personnel required for these special missions. The DEU UNUnited Nations Trg Centre is the institution that performs this demanding task on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. Since 1993, military observers and liaison officers from all over the world have been trained in Hammelburg for United Nations missions. The course participants are intensively trained in the fields of negotiation, mediation, liaison, coordination, documentation and reporting. The future “United Nations Military Observer (UNMOUnited Nations Military Observer)” have to undergo several-day exercises in open terrain, where they must demonstrate their knowledge and skills during patrolling and other mission tasks. High-ranking visitors, e.g. the former President of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2016, have repeatedly underlined the enormous importance of this training by their attendance.
