Case Studies

In-Depth Case Studies

The Zimbabwe Peace and Security Programme (ZPSP) case study discusses the challenges in bringing about change in contexts hostile to Security Sector Transformation (SST). As part of a knowledge-focused mandate, ISSAT collated a series of resources documenting the work of ZPSP, including videos, documents with good practice and lessons identified, as well as a comprehensive country profile on Zimbabwe.

The Nigeria Justice For All (J4A) Programme focuses on reforming the formal and informal organisations that deliver policing services. Analysing state and federal level interventions to improve community security, the case study identifies five strategic lessons and their implications for other police reform focused programmatic work.

Case Studies offer detailed examination of Security and Justice Sector Reform issues, as applied to context-specific conditions. These case studies focus both on outcomes resulting from ISSAT Mandates and projects, as well as research and investigations undertaken by a range of other organisations.

The majority of case studies are short, outlining context, entry points, lessons and further resources.
