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.

Presentation for EU working committees on SSR/Train&Equip

Pays-Bas mandate in EU 20/06/2016 - 20/06/2016

On June 20th a meeting will take place under the NL EU presidency that will bring together the two committees of EU member states representatives that deal with development policy (“CODEV”) and with civilian aspects of crisis management (“CivCom”), as well as representatives from the European Commission and the European External Action Service. In total some 70 participants are expected.

The occasion for the meeting is the fact that this Summer the EU will produce two policy documents: one on SSR and one on Capacity Building in support of Security and Development (CBSD – or Train&Equip). The document on SSR has gone through a relatively extensive consultation process with useful discussions on the concept as such and its application by EU instruments. The discussions on CBSD/Train&Equip, however, have been mostly top-down and focused on legal and budgetary issues. For the Netherlands that is cause for concern because train & equip as an approach of course has its risks and pitfalls.
