Assistance Programme: Lebanon

Lebanon joined the DCAF Foundation Council in spring 2007 as the first Arab country. DCAF assists Lebanon in developing effective and efficient security and justice providers, that:

  • deliver security to the Lebanese people in a transparent manner and line with their security needs;
  • are properly overseen and controlled by the Lebanese parliament and government;
  • are fully accountable to the Lebanese people and their elected leaders.

To this effect, DCAF works with four target groups:

  • Parliament and its committees
  • Government
  • Civil society
  • Armed, police and security forces

In support of its long-term assistance programme to Lebanese security sector reform (SSR), DCAF maintains a regional office in Beirut. DCAF provides its partners with comparative and policy advice and reserach, promotes inclusive approaches and processes to Lebanese SSR and conducts various capacity building programmes.
