GOVERNANCE

The rule of law, justice and security

We strengthen the rule of law, the justice system, security and the protection of human rights to achieve sustainable human development and to eradicate extreme poverty.

Decentralisation and local governance

We help civil society to developing inclusive local governance. We support local development by strengthening the synergies between the state, civil society and the private sector.

Efficient, accountable and inclusive institutions

We support our partners in their reforms to foster efficient and stable institutions. We support civic commitment and the strengthening of State–citizen relationships to stimulate efficient and inclusive public action.

Fragile situations

We intervene in a significant number of fragile countries or fragile situations. This requires us to adapt our approaches and interventions accordingly. In addition, we implement interventions that aim to address the deeper causes of fragility and conflicts.
