Mission exploratoire au Burkina Faso

EU mandate in Burkina Faso, Sahel 26/04/2018 - 31/05/2018

La mission principale aura pour objectif d’approfondir différents thématiques considérés comme prioritaires dans le cadre des réflexions en cours au Burkina Faso pour la modernisation des secteurs de la sécurité et de la défense. Ces thématiques, discutées avec la délégation de l’UE et le PARSIB (projet ENABEL) lors d’une séance de restitution de la mission exploratoire, sont :

  • L’analyse de l’ensemble du processus de contrôle externe au dispositif de sécurité, de justice et de défense. 
  • L’analyse du fonctionnement de la gestion des finances publiques dans les secteurs de la sécurité, la défense et la justice. 
  • L’analyse des questions de personnels des institutions de défense (armée de terre et gendarmerie), les aspects RH, les valeurs partagées, les dynamiques de la modernisation de la gestion, la féminisation. 

L’analyse de ces trois thématiques s’appuiera sur les principes de la méthodologie mise en place dans le cadre du présent projet confié par le FFU au DCAF-ISSAT, c’est-à-dire l’utilisation du socle de référence et de la grille d’analyse.

Cette analyse s’appuiera aussi sur les principes clés d’une réforme institutionnelle placée dans le cadre de l’approche GSS/RSS, portant notamment une attention soutenue aux questions de pilotage politique, au contrôle démocratique, à l’efficience budgétaire, à la coordination des activités, à la durabilité des effets, aux comportements des agents relevant des FDS vis-à-vis de la population bénéficiaire de leurs actions.

On the 5th of July 2016,  an "EU-wide Strategic Framework on SSR Support" was adopted to enhance the impact and sustainability of its efforts in supporting SSR processes. In order to ensure the implementation of this framework, the European Union Security Sector Governance Facility project was set up.The EU SSG Facility, funded by the Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace (IcSP), provides a unique service to all EU actors and instruments – political/diplomatic; external action instruments; crisis response; and CSDP civilian and military actors at all levels – in providing responsive, flexible and effective expertise for emerging needs in countries undergoing security sector reform and transformation.

The consortium responsible for implementing the Facility comprises the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF); the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA); and Justice Coopération Internationale (JCI).

The consortium has also associated the African Security Sector Network (ASSN) and the Netherlands Institute of International Relations, Clingendael, to draw on their distinct expertise.

The Facility is jointly steered by the European Commission Foreign Policy Instrument (FPI); the European External Action Service PRISM division (Prevention of conflicts, Rule of law/SSR, Integrated approach, Stabilization and Mediation); and the Facility’s Key Experts. This will
ensure that all requests for support missions are treated in a structured and transparent manner and that deployed expertise best matches the needs and expectations of the Facility’s beneficiaries, and meets the highest standards.

The Facility includes recognized experts with experience in the security, justice and governance sector, supported by a solid, experienced backstopping team drawn from the individual consortium members. The team includes:

  • Thomas Vennen, Head
  • Guillaume Lacaille, Principal Advisor
  • Antoine Hanin, Methodological Advisor
  • Victoria Walker, Backstopping Coordinator
  • Krisztina Szalachy, Administrative Assistant.
