Changing minds and attitudes: cross-sectoral working groups in Tajikistan

'Cross-sectoral working groups' are groups made up of representatives of different government agencies and civil society, as well as local activists and youth, who come together as a single organised body to collaborate on community security issues.

Saferworld works with cross-sectoral working groups (CWGs) in five regions of Tajikistan: Isfara, Kushoniyon, Nurobod, Vanj and Hamadoni – with each choosing a priority community security problem specific to the local context. We aim to increase understanding of the underlying drivers of insecurity and violence, including those that contribute to recruitment into or support for violent groups, and address these causes through these groups.
