To support UK 77 BDE MoD Outreach Group capacity building by running the 2nd
of 3 Courses
(1 per annum) focused on building practical understanding around the characteristics (1-2-3) of SSR; enhancing skills required to support SSR programming; examine thematics such as justice, police and defence reform and their interlinkages; identify key lessons and trends from practical SSR experiences; engage and share experience between participants, facilitators and external experts.
The programme will be run from 29th October to 9th November 2018. The aim is to enhance participants’ effectiveness in the role of senior strategic police advisor to international police reform initiatives, through exposure to experienced actors in the field of police reform or security sector reform. The Masterclass programme uses case study methodology to enable participants to consider alternative perspectives in a variety of international police settings. The Masterclass also lays the foundation for active participation in a peer group community of practice that will help develop the field and offer a continuing source of professional support.
In addition, DCAF ISSAT will attend the Police Master class executive board meeting in Scotland on 9 November 2018 to review the future development of the Police Masteclass.
