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,.

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.

Yemen has been embroiled in conflict for the better part of the last six years. Deteriorating economic conditions coupled with systemic failures in governance have exacerbated the conflict and left Yemenis without access to basic services, increasing grievances and deepening marginalization. From 2018 to 2020, the International Center for Religion and Diplomacy (ICRD), PartnersGlobal, and PartnersYemen worked in communities across Yemen to strengthen connections between civil society, religious leaders, and government actors to address local needs. This paper from ICRD reflects on these efforts to engage communities and help them communicate local needs to decision-makers with an ability to impact national peace talks and agreements. The paper also provides actionable policy recommendations to the international community for supporting peace in Yemen at the local and national levels.

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. Read more about these partnerships for public health and safety.

As a part of our broader Narratives for Peace initiative, PartnersGlobal, together with the Alliance for Peacebuilding, has been investing in bridging narrative theory and practice to make “peacebuilding” a more salient policy priority for the broader public. With support from Humanity United and the Open Society Foundations, we are working closely with Frameworks Institute on a social science research project to uncover effective narrative frames for peacebuilding in US foreign policy.

The research surfaces the common frames and narratives used by the peacebuilding field on the one hand and the ways the public perceives peace on the other. The research also offers recommendations on how peacebuilding experts can more effectively communicate and better frame their messaging to resonate with the American public and increase support for peacebuilding.

Understanding the Conversation About Peacebuilding: An Analysis of Organizational Communications reviews how the peacebuilding field is currently “framing” peacebuilding in the US and provides initial recommendations on how we can communicate about peace more effectively

Recommendations include:

  1. Explain what peacebuilding involves in clear and accessible terms
  2. Always make the case for peacebuilding, not just against military action
  3. Tell a consistent story about why peacebuilding matters.

This research, conducted by Frameworks Institute in partnership with the Alliance for Peacebuilding and PartnersGlobal is part of PartnersGlobal’s Narratives For Peace initiative. Funded by Humanity United and Open Society Foundations, the research initiative aims to better understand common narratives around peace and peacebuilding used by the public and the peacebuilding field in order to identify gaps between the two. Ultimately, the initiative seeks to find ways to better communicate to the American public what peacebuilding is and why it matters and to increase support for international peacebuilding efforts.
