Domestic Security Implications of UN Peacekeeping

Project: Types of projects

D-SIP is a five-year research project that explores the linkages between UN peacekeeping contributions, domestic security provision and drivers of stability in Ghana. It generates knowledge on how participation in peacekeeping abroad shapes the effectiveness and legitimacy of the police and military and provides insight into the broader dynamics of peace and state-building. D-SIP looks at this issue from the national to the local level, and from policy-making to everyday practices of policing.
D-SIP is coordinated by DIIS, in partnership with the Institute of African Studies (IAS) at the University of Ghana, Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC), and Danish Institute Against Torture (DIGNITY). It is funded by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Danida.
