Mandator

The Council Conclusions of 18 May 2015 launched the process of reviewing the EU SSR policies by mid-2016 with the aim of developing an EU-wide strategic framework for supporting SSR. Within this timeframe a certain number of steps need to be carried out to take stock of where the EU stands in terms of SSR. These include what are the main lessons identified over the last decade, what has been learned and how could the good practices be integrated and bring added value to future EU support to SSR processes in partner countries.

This mandate was to support the EU in this stocktaking exercise, focusing on the analysis of three countries where the EU has supported SSR processes: DRC, Mali and Ukraine. The main objectives were to:

1) capture recent and hands-on experience from EU support to SSR across the different regions of the world;

2) analyse what works/does not work; and

3) identify the good practices to inform the new EU-wide strategic framework on SSR
