UNDP Turkey will support the Ministry of Interior of Turkey for "Improvement of Civilian Oversight of Internal Security" through an EU funded technical assistance project.

The specific objective of the Project is to contribute to the progress towards the overall objective spelled out above, the project aims at establishment of institutional and regulatory framework conditions for an effective oversight by the MoI of Internal Security Forces at the central and local level. The Project aims at making transition from narrowly conceived, bureaucratically and legalistically managed oversight of policing to a system of security sector governance based on human centered understanding of security and public safety and transparency in partnership with the civil society.



The project is composed of 3 components:



Component A - Legislative Framework: This component aims at enabling the Ministry of Interior and the public administrators (governors and sub governors) to exercise civilian oversight over law enforcement bodies.



Component B - Capacity Building: This component aims at increasing the capacity at the MoI to realize its mission as regards the administrative management of security forces at the central and local level and establishment of institutional structures needed in order to meet the EU standards for HR protection and for a strengthened civilian oversight.



Component C - Civil Society and Media: This component aims at contributing to strengthen independent oversight on law enforcement bodies and increase citizens participation in oversight.
