JOURNEES D’ECHANGES ET DE PARTAGE D’EXPERIENCES 2019: Partenaires pour la sécurité en Guinée

Ces trois journées exceptionnelles ont été l’occasion de rencontres et de discussions passionnantes entre tous les protagonistes de l’événement : des représentants du gouvernement guinéen, l’Ambassadeur des Etats Unis en Guinée, des élus locaux, des parties prenantes telles que des organisations non-gouvernementales (ONG) et des associations, des policiers, des femmes, des jeunes leaders et un large public fort de 400 participants réunis autour du projet, avec pour fil rouge la promotion du dialogue et l’instauration d’un climat de confiance entre la population et la police. Ces journées ont été agrémentées par des pièces de théâtres, des présentations musicales et comiques, ainsi qu’un match de football entre policiers et citoyens.



The Partners for Security in Guinea Share Fair provided an opportunity for the project’s participants to gather to share what they learned and celebrate their successes in security sector reform and community policing. More than 400 people attended, including representatives of the Guinean government, the US Ambassador to Guinea, local elected representatives, police officers, and women and youth leaders, and stakeholders such as members of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and associations,.

The Partners for Security in Guinea project is pleased to announce the launch of its Guide to Best Practices. These best practices are the culmination of consistent collaboration among the Guinean government, law enforcement, community leaders, and everyday citizens to reform the security sector through community policing and build trust between police and citizens. The Guide shares the innovative initiatives, tools, and best practices that contributed to the project’s success and that can inform community policing initiatives and security sector reform in other countries

About the Project

From 2015-2020, the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs has supported PartnersGlobal and consortium members COGINTA and CECIDE in implementing the Partners for Security in Guinea project. The project’s goal was to institute community policing in Guinea and to reform the security sector by improving relationships between police and communities so they could collaboratively address shared security challenges.

Le projet « Partenaires pour la Sécurité en Guinée » a le plaisir d’annoncer le lancement de son Guide des Bonnes Pratiques. Ces bonnes pratiques sont l’aboutissement d’une collaboration constante entre le gouvernement guinéen, les forces de l’ordre, les leaders communautaires et les citoyens pour réformer le secteur de la sécurité par le biais de la police de proximité et instaurer la confiance entre la police et les citoyens. Le Guide partage les initiatives innovantes, les outils et les bonnes pratiques qui ont contribué au succès du projet et qui peuvent éclairer les initiatives de police de proximité et la réforme du secteur de la sécurité dans d’autres pays.

A propos du projet

Au cours des cinq dernières années, INL a soutenu PartnersGlobal et les membres du consortium COGINTA et CECIDE dans la mise en œuvre du projet « Partenaires pour la sécurité en Guinée : la réforme de la police au service des citoyens ». Le but du projet était d’instituer la police de proximité en Guinée et de réformer le secteur de la sécurité en améliorant les relations entre la police et les communautés afin qu’elles puissent en collaboration relever les défis de sécurité.

As governments work to contain the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, they have relied on their security forces to maintain a rule of law and help enforce health guidelines. Police, armed forces, and other security groups are playing vital roles in the fight against COVID-19, from enforcing curfews or quarantines to distributing supplies and building medical facilities.

The PartnersGlobal Resiliency+ Framework requires a shift in mindset for leaders and teams within organizations to think differently and partner in new ways to continue to survive and thrive when facing shocks.  At times of great stress, upheaval, and change, we are called upon to build up our conflict resolution skills. Therefore, communication skills, including asking the right questions, are integral to applying the Resiliency+ Framework in practice, putting empathy and restorative practice at the center of our resiliency journeys as civil society.

As conflict resolution expert Ken Cloke explains in this slideshow presentation, chronic conflict reduces resiliency within organizations and societies. Mediation and conflict resolution, he says, are therefore resiliency processes. By applying mediation or conflict resolution-based communications to reach out to those who think differently and address challenges, we are in fact working to bolster our resiliency.

Staff Readiness and Well-Being are essential to an organization’s sustainability and resiliency. Yet too often, organizational culture, leadership, and resources don’t provide frameworks and policies to ensure these key elements can be meaningfully supported. In conjunction with the webinar series for PartnersGlobal’s Resiliency+ Framework, this resource guide form The Contact Project aims to provide basic insights for developing a culture and policies for well-being and staff readiness.
