Project Description

Understanding Security

RESEARCH – DIALOG – ADVOCACY

The Yemen Polling Center (YPC) started its security program in 2012 with the assistance of the EU Delegation to Yemen when the center began researching different facets of the Yemeni security sector and popular perceptions on security and police work. Since then we have implemented three consecutive security related project funded by the EU: Security Governance in Yemen. Conditions and Framework for a multi-layered Security Network (2012 -2015); Enhancing Legal Security, Arrest Procedures, and Detention Conditions of Women and Girls (2014); Rebuilding Peace and Security in Yemen (2016-2019).

In late 2017, we also started to research the institutional capacity of rule of law institution with the support of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation. We are proud to see our research inform the programming of countless donors and international implementors.

Deliverables

YPC’s security programme seeks to understand security from the community’s perspective. In its projects, YPC has researched which actors are relevant in terms of security provision and which are threats to security. Through in-depth interviews and observation, YPC tries to determine if and how state and non-state security providers cooperate and how cooperation can improve.

With its special focus on gender, YPC has published on women’s security needs, their role in security provision and implemented an entire project on the improvement on the legal framework and detention conditions of women.
