Building a Sustainable Afghan Training Capacity in Trafficking in Persons
The SGG has launched a large-scale 3-year program to help develop a sustainable Afghan training and curriculum development capacity in the area of trafficking in persons. The SGG will provide close mentoring, specialized expertise, training, and feedback to Afghan officials, who will in turn devise a locally-owned curriculum. In addition, the project team will work with its Afghan partners to develop a sustainable knowledge base and infrastructure to manage the delivery of training courses in the future. The project is funded by the United States Department of State's Office ot Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (J/TIP).
Operational Guidance Note on the Harmonization of National Security Legislation
The SGG is supporting a joint African Union – African Security Sector Network project seeking to produce an Operational Guidance Note on the Harmonization of National Security Legislation. The project meets a pressing need to bring existing national security legislation across member states in line with each other – with the objective of ensuring greater consistency in governance and human rights norms in the African security sector as well as enhancing interoperability in missions involving multinational security services.
