Job Description


For Training Workshops to develop and deliver a suitable training programme for police advisory committee

  1. Introduction to Saferworld

         Saferworld is an independent non-governmental organisation that works with governments, international, regional and local civil society organisations – especially in fragile contexts – to reduce violent conflict, promote cooperative approaches to security and contribute to long term recovery and stability. We work with civil society, governments and international organisations to encourage and support effective policies and practices through advocacy, research and policy development, and through supporting the development of local capacities and structures.

Since its establishment in 1989, Saferworld has actively worked internationally to encourage the development and implementation of international policies and approaches to address violent conflict and insecurity, and have made significant progress on a range of conflict prevention issues, including, promoting effective and accountable security and justice sector development and supporting initiatives to tackle small arms and light weapons control. In the context of conflict prevention, we focus on community safety and security promotion; the development of civil society actors capacity to engage on security and justice issues.

Saferworld has over 15 years’ experience in Somalia and Somaliland. Since 2004, we have been working with partners to promote democratisation, ensure governance is more inclusive, and to improve community security. We work with three non-state actor platforms in South Central Somalia, Somaliland and Puntland to promote and coordinate civil society involvement in peacebuilding, statebuilding, governance and democratisation. We introduced community action forums in three regions of Somalia to enable communities to identify and determine how to address their own safety and security challenges.

  1. Overview of the programmes

Saferworld is implementing two Addressing Root Causes (ARC) programmes in Somalia which is funded by the ARC Fund from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of the Netherlands and are running from 2017 to 2021. Their overall goal is to reduce root causes of armed conflict, instability or irregular migration.

Together with our partners Somali Women Development Centre (SWDC) in Mogadishu, Somali Women Solidarity Organization (SWSO) in Kismayo and Isha Human Rights Organization (IHRO) in Baidoa, Saferworld is implementing the programme ‘Restoring Stable Communities in Somalia’. The programme strengthens the capacity of local civil society groups and communities to research and facilitate broad dialogue across clan and state-society divides about local security issues, provide resources for implementation of joint conflict prevention and community security initiatives, support cross-regional community exchange to share experiences and common security problems; and link community members with existing dispute resolution mechanisms. At the state level, it seeks to re-establish bodies that promote community-responsive policing, acting as a link through which information on security provision is channelled, and form bridges between local, state and national levels. Learning and insights from all levels will be fed upwards through national-level civil society networks, promoting community-focused security provision at national and international levels. Broadly, the programme aims to improve the roles and responsibilities among communities, administrations, police and courts in the three state capitals, in the interest of mutual accountability. This will result in improved state-society relations, especially in the provision of security services, through improved perceptions of safety and security, and practically, a more functional and responsive formal security sector.

The programme seeks to contribute to the following:

Outcome 1: Communities and civil society in Benadir, Jubaland and South West State, including marginalised groups such as women and youth, work together across clan lines to resolve safety and security issues, advocate with relevant authorities for appropriate responses and promote cross-regional cooperation.

Outcome 2: Police and state institutions coordinate, share information, implement inclusive responses to communities’ security needs and are actively engaging with Police Advisory Committees (PACs) to discuss and respond to issues and concerns raised by Community Action Forums (CAFs), resulting in increased citizen-state trust.

Outcome 3: National (FMS and Mogadishu), regional and international policy makers reflect the security needs of local communities, in particular the concerns of women and youth across clan divides, in policies and practices on security in Somalia.
