This is a web-based application of the ENTRi handbook In Control, which is based on existing knowledge and generally appreciated handbooks. We would therefore like to acknowledge our main sources and express our deep gratitude for all valuable contributions to the present manual.

In particular, we would like to thank the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for their kind permission to include parts of Daniel Lloyd Roberts’ Staying Alive, the Australian Government Attorney-General’s Department for permission to use content from the Australian Emergency Management Handbook series and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) for their kind permission to include parts of the UNDAC Handbook.

In addition, we are grateful to the European External Action Service (EEAS) for providing us with their Handbook for Spokespersons in EU Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) missions and operations and we would like to thank the Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI) of the European Commission and the EEAS for assisting with a general accuracy check on EU aspects.

Last but not least, we are thankful for contributions made by Michelle Kasdano and Claire Goudsmit as well as the input provided by colleagues at the Center
for International Peace Operations (ZIF).
