If you have a passion for making the world a better place and want to have a front row seat to the world stage, USIP is the place for you.

Justice and security dialogue

USIP started its first Justice and Security Dialogue in Nepal in 2007 to restore trust between police and communities following a 10-year civil war. The dialogue gathered security forces and civil society groups who jointly devised solutions to combat drug abuse and dispel prejudices among ethnic and religious groups and resolved violent disputes. These community-level dialogues bring security and justice providers together with local residents to dispel mistrust and build cooperation to tackle urgent security concerns.

USIP teams, working with local partners, first gather representatives of all the relevant groups in a community to discuss and collectively identify the problems they are facing. The dialogues then lead the community toward practical, concrete solutions of its security problems—which can range from robberies and break-ins to weapons smuggling. Overall, the process emphasizes openness and transparency, and generally lasts for a year or longer.

In Justice and Security Dialogues, USIP and its local partners assist communities in making changes by sponsoring outreach campaigns and policy forums, and mentoring participants. They promote and develop relationships, mutual understanding, and knowledge-sharing among residents, government officials and police. The result is citizens who are active in the safety of their community, and a more effective and accountable local security force.
