In 2010, at the request of the Netherlands, ISSAT was asked to support a group of four police academies to develop a two week training course, targeting mainly (senior) law enforcement officials. The aim of the course is to train these officers on the issues around police reform within an SSR and post-conflict context, and to prepare them to act as police reform advisors within multilateral mission or bilateral support programmes.

The programme is a joint endeavour chaired by theNetherlandsin conjunction withNorway,Canadaand theUK. ISSAT will provide advisory support, provide its current SSR training materials and present a module on looking at police reform through an SSR lens. The first course was piloted in September 2011, and a second course took place in 2012, both at Bramshill in the UK. The Third course was hosted in 2013 by the Swiss at Stans, and this year’s Master Class will be hosted by the Norwegians in Stavern, Norway.

The primary focus of the training will be the criminal justice chain, including police and justice reform and their linkages to other processes. Key topics covered during this training will include the fundamentals of JSSR, adopting a gender-sensitive approach to JSSR, JSSR programming and effective advising.


Concrete case studies and interactive co-learning methodologies that encourage participants to share their own experiences will be used throughout the course.
