About us

COGINTA is an independent registered non-governmental organization based in Geneva, Switzerland, that provides technical assistance on security sector governance, police reform and community-oriented policing in fragile and conflict affected countries.

Our objective is to support host-governments in building stronger justice and law enforcement institutions based on the principles of rule of law, and to improve the effectiveness of police organizations to address the negative effects of violence and criminality on their prospect for peace, development and social cohesion.

Our experts provide in-country capacity-building services, including advisory support, training, management, programming, monitoring and evaluation. Our expertise derives from practical research and long-standing field experience in transition countries.

COGINTA works with police organizations, governments, international organizations, national development agencies and civil society organizations.
