BACKGROUND

Moomken is executing a six month “Preventing Electoral Violence” project to train police officers and community leaders/activists on Preventing Electoral violence activities and create opportunities for solid collaboration, networking, and exchange between local communities and police.

The project begins by Moomken developing a PEV toolkit based on USIP’s curriculum to create sustainable and reliable learning resources for police officers and community actors. The toolkit will also serve as reference material for trainees to look back on post-training. Additionally, the organization will develop three e-learning courses on Moomken’s www.mocs.ly platform for participants who will move to conduct local trainings.

 

Moomken conducted a Training of Trainers for nine trainers who will go on to conduct in-person trainings for a total of 50 participants (police officers and community actors) in Benghazi, Ubari and Brak Alshati. Prior to participating in these in-person trainings, participants urged to complete USIP’s PEV online course to give trainees a foundational set of knowledge. The trainings focused on how to combat electoral violence, responding to early warning signs and rapid interventions if election violence is detected in their areas.

The goal of the project

 

Is to equip police officers and community actors with the tools to address and prevent electoral violence by Increasing available tools and information on preventing election violence in the Libyan context and by Increasing knowledge and skills among police officers and community actors to address and prevent election violence.

Also, the project will focus on strengthening the capacity of the police officers and the community leaders to prevent, detect and combat electoral violence. As the police officers are going to be heavily involved in voting operations security, their training will be more focused on giving them solid knowledge and tools on different thematic training workshops starting with the peace and conflict analysis, conflict management, electoral violence, and emergency responses during the election period.
