Security and justice from a county perspective: Bong County, Liberia

This short briefing is based on focus group discussions and interviews in Bong County during February and March 2010. Additional research and verification was conducted during a follow-up trip in April 2010 and with stakeholders outside the county. Interviews and community consultations were held in Gbarnga, the county seat, the rural border community of Jorwah, and the small, formerly industrial town of Bong Mines. The research thus attempted a representative sample of rural and urban communities from across the county but the results should be considered indicative rather than comprehensive.
