Humanitarian Protection in the Liptako-Gourma region


The proposed 2-year project (2020-2022) by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) and local research partners, namely the Centre for Democratic Governance (CGD) in Burkina Faso, Point Sud in Mali and the Laboratoire d'Etudes et de Recherche sur les Dynamiques Sociales et le Développement Local (LASDEL) in Niger, focuses on the Liptako-Gourma region, encompassing Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger. Since 2015, this border region has become the epicenter of the Sahel crisis and both state and non-state armed groups have committed serious violations of International Humanitarian Law (IHL). Despite several national and international initiatives, the number of conflict-related victims has increased from 199 in 2012 to 1 464 in 2018, with a significant increase of IDPs, food insecurity, school closures, and gender-based violence. Several factors are at play, such as the absence of the state, the competition over natural resources, violent extremism, or the proliferation of self-protection militias and climate change. The project will focus on impact of restraint (theme 3) and impact of local protection mechanisms (theme 4), with diversity/gender as a crosscutting theme. The project will be structured around the following research questions: What are the protection threats, risks and vulnerabilities across the different groups of the population of Liptako-Gourma? What local protection mechanism do they use? On which social norms and rules are they based? What is the relation between local protection mechanisms and restraint from violence? Are there risks for people to protect themselves? How do humanitarian protection responses interact with local protection mechanisms (positive, neutral or negative)? How do the different groups of the population assess the impact of humanitarian responses on their own protection and safety? How can humanitarian protection optimally complement and support local protection mechanisms, without having any possible unintended negative consequences? The project aims to address the knowledge gaps and identify perceptions, priorities and needs of local populations in order (i) to document the situations at the grass-root level, (ii) to improve the effectiveness of DRC cycles of humanitarian protection programmes, and (iii) to support all relevant stakeholders through evidence-based analysis in better understanding the priorities of affected communities. To do so, the project will use a mixed research approach of quantitative surveys and qualitative studies led by networks of trained facilitators and researchers in each country to (a) better understand security and humanitarian issues at the micro-local level and; (b) measure the relevance and impact of humanitarian protection interventions in the region. Dedicated publications, regional events (validation/national sharing workshops, regional conference, practitioner meeting) and outputs (press conferences, video films) will allow a large dissemination of the findings and contribute to maximise the overall impact of the project. To ensure a long-term impact and sustainability of the project, the proposal also develops a capacity-building component for facilitators and researchers in the three countries in order to develop a local ownership of the methodology and working relations between partners in the three countries.

Peacekeepers As Soldiers And Humanitarians: The Impact Of Contradictory Roles And Responsibilities On The Protection Mandate of Peacekeepers


The project conducts research on the currently two largest African peace operation, the UN peacekeeping mission in the DRC (MONUSCO) and the AU peacekeeping mission in Somalia (AMISOM). Both missions have complex mandates and combine military (combat), political (stabilisation/statebuilding) and humanitarian goals. The protection of civilians became a cornerstone of both missions. Military peacekeepers are often required to straddle combat and pacific responsibilities, combining military, diplomatic and humanitarian roles. They fight violent actors who are often not easily distinguishable from civilians, patrol roads and convoy humanitarian deliveries, while they are simultaneously requested to develop relations with communities affected by violence, to mediate conflicts and often also to provide humanitarian goods. The project explores how UN and AU peacekeepers in the DRC and in Somalia fulfil their protection mandate from the perspective of protection providers and protection recipients: military peacekeepers (provider), civilians (recipients) and humanitarian worker (recipients and ideally partners of peacekeepers). It will provide an in-depth and differentiated account on how military peacekeepers navigate their increasingly complex roles, swap between combat and pacific responsibilities and how their protection efforts are experienced at the recipients' end. This knowledge is crucial in improving protection efforts. The findings of the research will be shared in round tables with all three actor groups. The round tables aim at receiving feed-back on the research. More importantly, they also aim at providing a platform for communication and at stimulating dialogue between military peacekeepers, civil humanitarian actors and civilians. Round tables will be organised by local civil society organisations who partner in the research project, and it is expected that they will uphold communication links even after the research ended. The findings, i.e. the experiences of the providers and recipients of protection, will feed into a peacekeeping training module. The module will be developed in cooperation with the International Peace Support Training Centre (IPSTC) in Nairobi. The training will be piloted during a workshop with AU and UN trainers and representatives of military headquarters and military trainers of troop contributing countries. The evaluation of the participants will help to fine-tune the training and to finalize a training handbook that will be made publically available and shared with peacekeeping training centres and military headquarters of troop contributing countries.
