EUAM’s five priorities:
Human-resource managementDelineation of competencies refers to the division of labour and the responsibilities of civilian security sector agencies.
Criminal investigationCriminal Investigation is strengthening the ability to fight organised crime and corruption.
Public orderDelineation of competencies refers to the division of labour and the responsibilities of civilian security sector agencies.
Community PolicingA cornerstone of a democratic society is that citizens have a right to say how they would like to be policed.
What will the five proirities achieve?
A civilian security sector that is efficient, accountable, and enjoys the trust of the public.
EUAM has identified five priority areas in supporting reform of the civilian security sector in Ukraine. These five priorities impact each of EUAM’s partner agencies in different ways. However, the Mission has also identified what we call «cross-cutting issues» because they play a part in each of the five priorities and are relevant for all agencies of the civilian security sector.
Those three cross-cutting issues are:
Human rights and genderPrioritising of human rights and gender is a critical part of any reform process, and certainly reform of law-enforcement and rule-of-law agencies.
Good governanceGood governance is concerned with reform in areas such as public administration, public oversight, public finance, and decentralization.
