GPPi, InterAction and Saferworld release civil society recommendations on security and development
The Global Public Policy Institute, together with InterAction and Saferworld, released a set of recommendations for the European Union and the United States on improving development cooperation in fragile and conflict-affected states.

Saferworld is an independent non-governmental organisation that works to prevent violent conflict and build safer lives. We work with civil society, governments and international organisations to encourage and support effective policies and practices through advocacy, research and policy development, and through supporting the actions of others.
