This study by Dr. Shyamika-Javasundara-Smits and Dr. Lisa Schirch was produced as part of the project “Whole of Society Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding”. This project aims to enhance the EU’s peacebuilding and conflict prevention capabilities. It is part of the first series of orientation papers that were intended to indicate lines of inquiry and propose research questions, as a basis for discussion and input for the project's Theoretical and Methodological Framework. The main objective of this study is to provide an initial orientation to the EU's Security Sector Reform by focusing on related policy developments and scholarly knowledge production on SSR. Further, by reviewing a few EU SSR operational missions, this paper highlights a few key challenges and gaps the EU faces in realizing its SSR goals and, more generally, its civilian peacebuilding and crisis management goals.
