Introductory Course on Security Sector Reform (SSR) in Germany
This will be a German familiarisation course that aims to enhance the understanding and capability of German personnel being considered for involvement in SSR-related overseas programmes within fragile and conflict-affected environments. As a 3-day course will include delivery of international SSR policies and practice as well as the application and management of issues associated with effective programme implementation. Specifically, the course will be dovetailed into existing trainings delivered by the Hammelburg Peacekeeping training centre and will also help the students understand the wider political characteristics, challenges and context of SSR activity and process likely to be faced by managers in the field.
With the inclusion of relevant Case Study example - Tunisia – this will provide a practical demonstration of linkages between effective SSR programming, governance and oversight. From a methodological perspective, the course will also cover the theory of change within an international context, enabling participants to consider this effective practice alongside other existing models, including project management and programme cycle options. Included will be an SSR overview about UN/EU/NATO/OSCE in relation to common elements and different perspectives. Core to the outcome of this engagement, will be in enabling the Hammelburg PKTC to progressively move towards the independent and effective design and delivery of SSR trainings.
