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.

Sudan Police Scoping Mission

Switzerland mandate in Sudan 16.09.2018. - 16.12.2018.

In May 2018, the former Foreign Minister of the Republic of Sudan, Prof. Ibrahim Ghandour, asked Switzerland for assistance in the field of SSR. Following an exploratory mission by the Human Security Division (HSD) in March 2018, it was decided that Switzerland should assess potential support to the Sudanese Police Forces (SPF) within the context of existing Swiss migration assistance frameworks. The support would focus on fostering Sudan’s willingness to tackle some systemic challenges with regard to respect for international human rights and humanitarian law within its police and security forces. At the same time, it would represent a further step towards building up a constructive and enduring relationship between Switzerland and the Sudanese government. 

As a result, ISSAT was requested to undertake an initial scoping mission to gauge potential challenges and opportunities for support to reform of the SPF. This would include the subsequent development and delivery of a two-day sensitisation on SSR for selected Sudanese Police and Ministry of Interior personnel should the context be conducive.
