At the moment there are various discussions taking place regarding the link between SSR and development - in particular in the context of the SDGs. Also in the Netherlands this is an important topic. Does anyone know of recent documents that discuss some of the issues mentioned below?

  • link security & development
  • SSR & post-2015 agenda
  • SSR & SDGs (in particular SDG 16)

Thank you!

Hi Petra,

In the run-up to the upcoming UN meetings, Saferworld recently published a briefing on the subject: http://www.saferworld.org.uk/resources/view-resource/999-from-agreement-to-action-building-peaceful-just-and-inclusive-societies-through-the-2030-agenda which you might find informative, besides other documents you might have come across.

Here is also a comment on the subject by  Seth Kaplan from Johns Hopkins, taking Guatemala as an example: http://theglobalobservatory.org/2015/09/sustainable-development-goals-united-nations-fragile-states/
