Mappings of Donor Support to SSR in Nigeria and Mali

01/07/2016 - 31/12/2016

Target country


ISSAT, jointly with Germany, will develop comprehensive mappings of donor support to SSR in Nigeria and Mali. In Mali, the mapping will focus on the criminal justice chain, including accountability. In Nigeria, the mapping will look at both the security forces and the criminal justice chain, also including accountability. With the aim of further building German SSR capacity, a joint Germany-ISSAT team will develop the methodology and undertake the mappings.

The methodology will be finalised during a one/two-day workshop at ISSAT in Geneva. This will be followed by a desk review and telephone interviews, exploiting ISSAT’s network across bilateral donors and multilateral actors, and building on already existing material. The findings will then be consolidated with a 10-day field mission to each country that will involve donors, implementing partners of SSR projects and international NGOs, as well as national institutions of the security and justice sector, including relevant ministries. The subsequent reports will then be shared by the joint Germany-ISSAT team across the international community active in the countries through an in-situ workshop that could also include discussions on how to further consolidate international support.
