From 24-25 February 2020, Marwa Baabbad, ORG’s Head of International Projects, joined a two-day dialogue session focusing on peacebuilding  through security sector reform and governance in Yemen. The event was organised by the Geneva Centre for Security Sector Governance (DCAF), in Geneva, Switzerland.

The meeting discussed security sector governance at a national level in Yemen, and the different scenarios regarding a formation of a national security committee, the key priorities of such a committee, and the best timing to discuss its role as part of the peace/transitional process. The discussions also included the security arrangements needed to reach a successful cease fire agreement and the key stakeholders that could take part in the monitoring process.
