Strengthening security governance in north and central Mali

Mali

Titre : Strengthening security governance in north and central Mali

Pays : Mali

Date : This is a one-and-a-half-year project, which began in December 2016.

Présentation
Strengthening security governance through community dialogue, conflict analysis and accountability between communities and security forces
This project is supporting conflict transformation and good governance in north and central Mali by building trust, dialogue and accountability between conflict-affected communities, security forces and local authorities.
It seeks to turn existing but non-functional or debilitated conflict management structures into permanent multi-stakeholder forums, encouraging debate around the main sources of violence, mitigation strategies and actions.

With support from Canadian Global Affairs’ Peace and Stabilisation Operations Program (PSOP), this project supports conflict transformation and promotes good governance in central and northern Mali by building trust, dialogue, and accountability among conflict affected communities, security forces, and local authorities. The project began with an assessment informed by over 60 interviews conducted over three weeks in the Mopti, Timbuktu, and Segou regions. This field research identified 11 drivers of poor security force-community engagement and produced 33 recommendations for Mali’s government, local communities, and international donors to improve security sector-community relationships. Subsequent work convened key government officials, security sector officials, civil society, and community members to address mutual security challenges and develop responses through a series of tabletop excercises to increase trust and coordination between security forces and the communities they serve.
