About GIZ-Afghanistan:

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is federal enterprise that supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. GIZ operates in more than 130 countries worldwide and has more than 17,000 staff members around the globe, some 70% of whom are employed locally as national personnel.

Under a commission from the German Foreign Office (AA), GIZ is assisting Afghanistan to improve stability and security by supporting the Afghan National Police (ANP). The aim is to promote a more citizen-oriented and professional police force and strengthen individual and organisational capacities. As part of police reforms initiated in Afghanistan, GIZ has been conducting joint measures with its partners in the area of community policing (CP) for some years now. Activities at provincial and district level support the ANP in its plan to implement CP by contributing to trust-building between police and the population.

A necessary precondition for building trust is that both parties, people and police reach out and talk to each other. Concerning the interaction between the female population and the police, the Family Response Units (FRUs) play an important role.

Subordinated to the MoIA Criminal Investigation Department, the FRUs serve as the police’s contact point for victims of domestic or gender-based violence (DV/GBV) and lead the investigation of related criminal cases as generally stipulated in Article 134 of the Afghan constitution.

The first FRU was established in 2006 by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Kabul. FRUs are tasked with the implementation of relevant laws and regulations, the development of gender-sensitive investigation techniques, the support and provision of safety for victims and its dependants and the promotion of female police recruits. By now, there are more than 200 FRUs established across Afghanistan. Despite all efforts by the Afghan government as well as international organisations and others, the FRUs still require support, amongst others in capacity-building for its staff. For this reason, GIZ-CPA in coordination with the MoIA FRU Department will organise a tailor-made training series for FRU officers.
