This week we marked a milestone in our support for the reform initiatives undertaken by the Ethiopian Federal Police (EFP). Started in 2020, our programme has helped senior leadership to define a change management process that will strengthen the efficiency and accountability of the police. It has also seen the development of the EFP’s first comprehensive public complaints mechanism, and a clear framework for the collection and analysis of forensic evidence – the first of its kind in the region.05 Aug 2022
At the recent DCAF Days in Brussels, our experts met with representatives of EU institutions and member states to take stock of developments in SSG/R policy and practice and explored the role of SSG/R in the implementation of the EU’s Strategic Compass. The discussions this year were framed by the significant global geopolitical changes of the last six months, and how they affect the EU’s approach to supporting security governance, especially in fragile and conflict-affected states.02 Aug 2022
