Census and Identification of Security Personnel after Conflict: A Tool for Practitioners, Revised Edition


ICTJ; Arezou Azad, Alexander Mayer-Rieckh, Serge Rumin

In the aftermath of a conflict, a census and identification program (CIP) verifies membership within one or several security institutions, identifies their institutional boundaries, and helps ensure that individuals do not informally join or leave the institution(s). This report hopes to fill the gap by explaining CIPs in a way that is useful for actors involved in SSR and by providing practitioners the means to plan and implement such programs.
