Strengthening security governance in north and central Mali

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.

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


Bridging deep divisions in Mali

In Mali, years of insecurity and violence have shattered trust between communities, the state and security forces. We are supporting dialogue forums to improve relations between them and strengthen accountability around security issues.
