Policy Brief: Gender assessment in relation to Model Police Station Pilot Assessment
Jun 20, 2021
As part of the Government of Iraq’s (GoI) overall Security Sector Reform Programme, a key action is to develop the Iraqi local police to be more citizen-centred and service-oriented under a strategy known as the Local Police Service Road Map. In order to translate the recommendations and priorities from the Local Police Service Road Map into tangible efforts on the ground, the Ministry of Interior (MoI), in cooperation with UNDP, is undertaking the Model Police Station Pilot Initiative in a selected number of target locations in Anbar, Baghdad, Basra, and Ninewa governorates, with a view to replicate the concept over time. The purpose of the Model Police Station Pilot Initiative is to design a context-specific model to restore a responsive, effective, and accountable local police service, that is accessible to both men and women.
