UN/AU Transition in Darfur: Lessons from Assistance on Rule of Law and Human Rights through the State Liaison Functions

Germany, Slovakia, Switzerland , UK, UN mandate in AU, Sudan , UN 01.10.2019. - 31.12.2020.

In the making since 2014, UNAMID’s transition concept was consolidated in 2018 by the Special report of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission and the Secretary-General of the United Nations on the strategic review of the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur 1 and endorsed by the resolution 2429 (2018). Defining further the two-pronged approach, the resolution proposed an innovative whole-of-system approach to be implemented in collaboration with UNCT through joint “State Liaison Offices” later called “State Liaison Functions” (SLF).  

DCAF’s ISSAT has responded positively to a request from UNAMID to assist in carrying out a lesson identification on the support provided through the SLF modality in the areas of rule of law (RoL) and human rights (HR), in the broader framework of Mission transition in Darfur. This exercise will be implemented in collaboration with OROLSI, UNDP-DPO-DPPA Joint Transition Project, and OHCHR.
