Approaches to effective security are increasingly involving communities and civil society in law enforcement. Saferworld’s EU funded project in Central Asia made great contributions with a focus on this approach. Seefar jumped at the chance to work with Saferworld and to evaluate the project.
The project has aimed to democratize police and security issues through supporting civil society engagement on policy and advocacy in Kyrgyzstan. Drawing on our personnel and experience in Central Asia, we had the honor to meet with a range of activists, officials and donors to explore and measure Saferworld’s efforts on a difficult and important in issue for Kyrgyzstan – and the region.
