PDC and Partners Senegal Collaborate on a New Security Sector Reform Program

Department of State Sponsored Conference: "Civil Society and the Security Sector - A Dialogue on Transformation"

In September 2012, Partners for Democratic Change and Partners Senegal will hold a conference on Security Sector Reform in the Mano River Union. The conference, sponsored by the US Department of State’s Africa Bureau, Office of Regional and Security Affairs will include participants from the governments, security sectors, and civil societies of Sierra Leone, Guinea, Cote d’Ivoire, and Liberia. At the event, participants will discuss the challenges to human security facing the region and devise citizen-focused solutions to those challenges, in part through dialogue between civil society and the security sector. The conference will also serve as a platform for strengthening relations between the security sectors of those countries, so that they can work together more collaboratively. Through the participation of US Government officials, the event will also strengthen key relationships between Mano River countries and the United States.
