Saferworld in Kyrgyzstan
Despite improvements in recent years, Kyrgyzstan faces many threats to long-term peace and security. Among them are weak governance and institutions, corruption and political instability, poor access to justice, violence against women and girls, inter-ethnic tensions, a perceived increase in political and religious intolerance, and disputes over borders, water and land.
Saferworld has been working in Kyrgyzstan since 2010 to improve cooperation and understanding between ethnic groups, communities, the police and authorities. We work with partners to address issues that affect people’s security, and advocate to government officials and civil society for improved policies and services for conflict-affected communities.
We foster and support the role of community members, in particular women and young people, in transforming conflict and building peace.
