SIREN ASSOCIATES SPECIALISE IN CIVIL POLICING TRANSFORMATION AND BROADER SECURITY SECTOR REFORM THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST, AS WELL AS IN SELECTED COUNTRIES IN AFRICA AND EUROPE.
SIREN believes that involving and empowering communities and wider civil society is crucial to effective security sector transformation.
SIREN believes that development of capabilities cannot be done for organisations - it must be done by and in effective partnership with them.
SIREN'S APPROACH IS COLLABORATIVE. IT IS BASED ON BUILDING PRODUCTIVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH LOCAL CLIENTS AND BENEFICIARIES IN COMMUNITIES AND STATE INSTITUTIONS.
The core team of senior experts is multi-national and multi-disciplinary. We draw upon a wide range of subject matter experts. Many have extensive policing experience in Northern Ireland, with involvement in post-conflict institutional reform.
SIREN assists local partners in the design of innovative and practical approaches to the challenges of creating safe and secure environments in post-conflict and fragile states.
SIREN focuses on rigorous problem analysis, carefully planned and targeted interventions, and effective monitoring and evaluation.
Siren Associates is a UK (Northern Ireland) registered not for profit organisation based in the Middle East.
