The Nuffic is pleased to launch a call for proposals for the Security and the Rule of Law – SRoL to invest in skills and competencies needed in the Security and the Rule of Law Sector.
The Orange Knowledge Programme (OKP) focuses on sustainable strengthening of capacity within local priority themes relevant to Dutch development cooperation.
The proposed project must contribute to at least one of the following long-term impacts:
> Human security: Reduced levels of violence and levels of fear experienced;
> Rule of Law: Citizens are better able to access their rights through fair, efficient, impartial, independent and accountable institutions;
> Peace and governance: States, regional and local authorities and societies at large are able to effectively prevent and resolve conflict in a non-violent and inclusive manner;
> Social and economic reconstruction: Income generating and livelihoods opportunities to prevent the (re)occurrence of conflicts, instability or irregular migration.
Capacity building interventions in the Security and the Rule of Law Sector (SRoL) address
varying educational and institutional needs depending on the level of stability, security and democratisation per country or region.
The majority of interventions of the Orange Knowledge Programme (OKP) address (future) staff of institutions engaged in the rule of law, such as the judiciary, juvenile justice and law enforcement agencies: indirectly through strengthening juridical education (for instance, faculties of law), directly through targeting the training capacity of these institutions.
