This ground-breaking project, carried out from 2007-2011, consisted of sustained and open dialogue among diverse civil society groups, political leaders, and senior officials in the military and security services. The project provided a forum for these diverse actors to discuss citizen control over police practices, the role of the military in the political system, and governance of intelligence agencies in a democratic context.

Bassma Kodmani, ARI Executive Director, and Salam Kawakibi, ARI Deputy Director, led this project.
