German Experiences in Police Building in Afghanistan


  • Markus Feilke

    (German Federal Police College)


Since the Petersberg Conference in 2001 Germany has been involved in the police building in Afghanistan. From 2001 until EUPOL Afghanistan took over responsibility in June 2007 Germany was the Lead /Key Partner Nation for police reform. During this time the German Police Project Office (GPPO) was in place, which switched over to German Police Project Team (GPPT) in June 2007. In addition to EUPOL Afghanistan the GPPT is the current bilateral project organisation where the German police officers are deployed. The purpose of this paper is to point out the German experiences working in the above mentioned structures/organisations for police reform of the Afghan police forces. This work was supported in part by Global COE Program "The Transferability of East Asian Development Strategies and State Building", Mext, Japan.
