Training includes an introduction to the UN Codes of Conduct and the NATO Policy on Combating Trafficking in Human Beings. All military personnel also receive training on international law, particularly on international humanitarian law and internationalhuman rights, including those related to gender-based violence, sexual violence and trafficking in human beings.
