The Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law aims to promote knowledge exchange and to identify, define and answer research questions with the aim of underpinning Dutch development policy in fragile and conflict affected settings and its implementation more adequately; thereby contributing to its effectiveness. Simultaneously, the platform aims to tackle a number of additional bottlenecks, including fragmentation of research funds (the platform will be the main vehicle through which the Ministry’s research funds on issues of security and rule of law are allocated), difficulties in linking knowledge to policy and its implementation, and inadequate exchange of practical knowledge and experience between organizations active in the field.
The aim of the Online Platform is to help disseminate knowledge and establish active knowledge networks. Online, you can share global insights and expertise on security and rule of law, and find the latest data and publications in the field. The browse function provides a gateway to the data and publications shared online. You can find inspiration from what we have selected for you in our spotlight. The website also offers an up-to-date overview of events in the field.
