Analysis of French SSR projects in West Africa

France mandate in WESTERN AFRICA 01/01/2015 - 30/04/2016

In 2014, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) requested DCAF to make a mapping of national government Departments and state agencies in charge of SSR programmes in the world. The written report brings up very different stances from the staff involved, including questions about the concrete difficulties in applying all the SSR principles, as well as the lack of coordination between Departments in both the preparation and implementation of their projects.

To deepen the results of this first work, the MFA has decided to confirm some of its conclusions through an analysis of actual projects that France has carried out in the long-term in different countries.
