DCAF Factsheet: Increasing Security Sector Accountability in Mali
In the aftermath of the 2012 crisis in Mali, Security Sector Reform (SSR) emerged as both a vehicle for and a precondition of post-conflict recovery and reconstruction, crucial not only to the immediate survival of the State but also to sustain long-term peace in the country and in the Sahel. DCAF, working in Mali since 2009, has been particularly involved in providing strategic and technical support to the SSR process in the context of the 2015 Algiers peace agreement. DCAF’s programme “Enhancing Security Sector Governance in Mali, 2017- 2020” seeks to support Malian stakeholders in creating democratically governed, effective and accountable security institutions as a foundation for sustainable peace and development.

Developing a Theory of Change for Justice and Security Sector Reform in Honduras
ISSAT and Swedepeace had a standing engagement in Honduras since 2013 providing technical assistance to the Swiss Agency for Development and Corporation (SDC) and their partners in civil society Alliance for Peace and Justice (APJ), Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and Secretary of Security of Honduras (SEDS). The Swiss JSSR Team supported the SEDS in their strategic planning by training on and applying a theory of change (ToC). The ToC process was a timely tool for this exercise, as it provided an opportunity to internally reflect on their current planning process and how it will impact externally. The process also allowed for a common understanding for base line to be developed as well as the definition of a desired end-state.
