Declan Power comes to this area from a solid platform of operational experience and doctrinal development having previously devised and taught Human Rights Awareness programs to international police and military officers across a series of United Nations peacekeeping and enforcement missions in Africa.
He has also taught’ Human Rights on Field Operations’ to the NATO Civil-Military Centre of Excellence (CCCOE) at the Hague.
During his service as a senior UN Civil-Military Coordination (UNCMCoord) Officer he was attached to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) where he regularly worked on field operations with UN police officers and local para-military forces promoting human rights issues and negotiating access for humanitarian agencies to engage in life-saving activities.
He also led a team in Darfur which developed an applied practical Human Rights-based training program for officers engaged in police liaison, peacekeeping and the ‘Saving Lives Together’ initiative which used Human Rights awareness training as a tool to limit excessive force such as kidnappings and attacks on civilian communities by protagonists in the Darfur civil war.
He is a graduate of the UN’s Humanitarian CMCoord basic instruction course, Field Officer’s course, and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affair’s Senior Staff Planning Course.
