Europe’s New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (ENTRi) is a unique capacity-building programme that was initiated in early 2011. The main focus lies on the preparation and training of civilians that are either going to, or already working in, crisis management missions worldwide. Such missions include those of the European Union (EU), United Nations (UN), Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), and the African Union (AU).

ENTRi is a 2.5 million Euro initiative funded by the European Commission (80%) and co-funded by its 13 implementing partners (led by the Center for International Peace Operations (ZIF) in Berlin). Each implementing partner is from a different Member State of the European Union. ENTRi was created by the European Union’s Instrument for Stability and is guided by The Foreign Policy Instruments Service, a service of the European Commission co-located with the European External Action Service.
