Expertise

We offer expertise in good governance and security sector reform programmes targeting all concerned actors: government authorities, civil society as well as state and non-state security institutions. We implement projects and programmes or advise project and programme managers on how to reach the best results in a specific context. We possess extensive field experience in the Middle East, West Africa and South America, and are fluent in English, Arabic, French, Portuguese, Spanish and German.

How we work

We ASK – DRAFT – ACT. We first understand the needs of all stakeholders involved (ask). We then analyse and formulate results and recommendations in briefings, strategies and policies (draft). Based on the first two steps, we take action (act).

What "draft" includes

We conduct comprehensive needs assessments and conflict analyses on topics relevant to good governance and security. As part of that, we develop questionnaires and conduct surveys. To cross-check the results, we prepare and implement focus group discussions with target groups.

We formulate the results of needs assessments and analyses in concise briefings and clear strategies. We get input from all stakeholders and formulate recommendations.

We draft stakeholder analyses and actors’ mappings.

We design and manage projects and programmes based on the needs of beneficiaries. We monitor progress and evaluate results. We connect people and establish sustainable networks. We also advise project and programme managers on how to design innovative development interventions.
