The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, together with the EU will organise a five-day advanced training course on “Security Sector Reform (SSR)”, at the CCOE in the Hague, Netherlands from 27 Nov – 01 Dec 2017. The course will be carried out in partnership with DCAF/ISSAT.

 

The course is primarily aimed at relevant policy makers, practitioners, military, policing as well as civilian participants working closely on issues related to Security and Justice Sector Reform (SJSR) or who are to be deployed in support of a bilateral, regional or multilateral missions supporting SJSR activity.

 

The training will aim to enhance the knowledge, skills, understanding and strategic thinking of participants on SSR principles through the sharing of views and experiences in SSR trends and practice, which will contribute to enhancing the effectiveness of their work. Exposed to practical tools and techniques applicable to use in mission, the participants will in particular, be supported in developing skills for effective advising.

Whilst many countries have designed and delivered specific training programs to prepare police officers for participation in peacekeeping missions, there are far fewer opportunities to prepare police experts to act as advisors and mentors to reform initiatives in post-conflict and transitional, organisational development contexts. A good advisor/expert requires a different set of skills, attitude and level of knowledge from those needed for traditional and narrowly defined peacekeeping deployments.

The National Police of the Netherlands, together with DCAF/ISSAT took the initiative to further explore this need in 2011 via their partnership with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), the United Kingdom Foreign and Commonwealth Office and College of Policing and the Norwegian Police University College. 

To date 84 delegates from 9 different countries have participated in a Masterclass. Evaluation showed them to have been very successful and alumni of this pilot programme have already made important career moves following the Masterclass. 

There is significant ownership by the five policing organisations, who have taken over the roll-out of the course for the long-term. The modules developed will also assist ISSAT in the inclusion of more police reform modules/examples into its Level 2 Advanced SSR training course.
