The International Security Sector Advisory Team (ISSAT)

ISSAT does not directly implement SSR programmes, it reinforces its members in their efforts to support security and justice reform. Our four service lines are designed to reinforce members in a number of ways:

ISSAT was established in 2008 in response to the need to increase the capacity of the international community to support Security Sector Reform (SSR) processes, to enhance the effectiveness and quality of SSR programming, and to facilitate the coordination and coherence of international assistance for nationally driven SSR processes.

ISSAT is a member-based organisation. As of September 2016, it is composed of 15 countries and five multilateral actors and their various agencies. All members are part of ISSAT's Governing Board and attend its bi-annual meetings. In addition to the Governing Board members, the African Union and the African Development Bank attend the bi-annual meetings as observers.

The ISSAT team brings together a diverse array of experience in security and justice reform, international development and programme management. The delivery of ISSAT's core products and services is led by its staff of SSR Advisors and a roster of SSR Associates who bring years of practical experience working on SSR issues around the globe.
