Security Governance in Yemen. Conditions and Framework for a multi-layered Security Network (2012 - )
Funded by the European Union's Instrument for Stability, YPC is implementing the Security Governance in Yemen project (2012-2014). The overall objective of this project is to enter into the Yemeni state-building efforts the idea of multi-layered security sector governance that encompasses state as well as non-state actors.
The specific objectives of this action are to assess the conditions for and facilitate the creation of a multi-layered approach to security sector governance in Yemen that takes into account local perceptions on security as well as local security structures.
Next to strengthen the security sector oversight capacity of Parliament, the project also aims to enhance the capacities of civil society actors, specifically women, and journalists to contribute to the monitoring of and advocacy for accountable security governance.
