UN mandate in Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger 07.07.2020. - 21.02.2021.

At the request of the Assistant Secretary-General for Rule of Law and Security Institutions, OROLSI seeks to establish a comprehensive approach to strategically and operationally strengthen rule of law and security institutions. Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger have been identified as priority countries. The objective of OROLSI’s engagement in those three priority countries is to provide strategic advice and technical support complementary to existing strategies and frameworks by drawing on specialist expertise available in OROLSI and its partners, within the Global Focal Point for Rule of Law arrangement.

In this regard, OROLSI sought the support of ISSAT/DCAF to jointly and gradually develop the regional engagement in the Sahel, starting in three priority countries (Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso), and building on OROLSI’s experience and expertise in MINUSMA and UNOWAS. The objective of ISSAT’s support is to analyze the key findings of previously conducted assessments, map relevant existing frameworks by international partners and identify gaps in areas under OROLSI purview. This analysis and mapping shall lead to the development of tailored recommendations on how OROLSI can complement those frameworks and address identified gaps including through the implementation of programmatic activities in this region.

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.
