Security Sector

Many countries face the challenge of how to approach security sector services in an inclusive and sustainable way that effectively balances security needs and citizens’ rights. PartnersGlobal is committed to supporting governments through this process in a participatory manner that brings in the experiences and concerns of those most affected by security forces and regulations: everyday citizens. We bring all actors to the table to find security solutions that respect rights and keep communities safe.
