We conceptualised and implemented a security needs assessment with Syrians in Germany. It was specifically designed to understand citizens’ needs and identify entry points for citizen-oriented security sector reform efforts. It analyses how the Syrian security system would need to change so that Syrians could feel safe and secure in post-war Syria.


We advised the Office of the Quartet (Jerusalem) on gender and the rule of law, with a specific focus on the Palestinian Judicial Police.

We also advised GIZ on how to integrate the concept of new social contracts in development interventions in the MENA region.


We regularly train the German Armed Forces on the Sustainable Development Goals, especially Sustainable Development Goal 16 and Middle East politics.

We trained civil society organisations in managing development projects in Germany and abroad.
