Unified security institutions and implementation of the Ceasefire Agreement

UNSMIL will work with security sector institutions to ensure they are operating under civilian oversight, are more unified, resourced, capable, and include professional and accountable defense and security forces.

Support the development and implementation of a coherent and coordinated policy on security sector reform through:

  • Providing good offices, strategic advice and mediation to help the transition to a unified military which addresses the problem of non-state armed groups.
  • Supporting national authorities on reforming Libya’s security sector, ensuring women are included, and providing support for mine action and security sector reform to prepare the ground for a disarmament, demobilization and reintegration process.
  • Supporting the professionalization of Libyan's law enforcement in line with international law enforcement standards and in respect of human rights through provision of training and equipment in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 1970 (2011).
