EULINK - Rawabet
In 2020, the Joint Military Committee in Libya called for the creation and deployment of a dedicated police force to the Libyan coastal road, composed of police officers and commanding officers from the different regions of the country. The EULINK- RAWABET project, implemented by B&S Europe, provides training, mentoring and direct support to the participating government stakeholders.
The action aims:
- To ensure the safety of the coastal road and of Libyan residents travelling on it through training and mentoring of staff and help increase their personal and unit capacities;
- To contribute to the implementation of the ceasefire agreement, and ensure a human rights based approach in its implementation, including the respect of rights and inclusion of marginalized communities
- To contribute to building confidence between police officers from the East and the West, and, by so doing, facilitating the creation of a strong foundation for a unified police
- force, which can in turn recruit more members and provide economic stability for recruited members of the communities they serve.
The action will develop around three main axes:
OUTPUT 1: Rehabilitation of police facilities through infrastructure work and equipment
OUTPUT 2: Support the Libyan authorities to design a coherent structure and cooperation mechanism for the police force.
OUTPUT 3: Train and equip staff of the police force to carry out police tasks in compliance with human rights and international humanitarian laws.
