On the 5th of July 2016,  an "EU-wide Strategic Framework on SSR Support" was adopted to enhance the impact and sustainability of its efforts in supporting SSR processes. In order to ensure the implementation of this framework, the European Union Security Sector Governance Facility project was set up.The EU SSG Facility, funded by the Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace (IcSP), provides a unique service to all EU actors and instruments – political/diplomatic; external action instruments; crisis response; and CSDP civilian and military actors at all levels – in providing responsive, flexible and effective expertise for emerging needs in countries undergoing security sector reform and transformation.

The consortium responsible for implementing the Facility comprises the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF); the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA); and Justice Coopération Internationale (JCI).

The consortium has also associated the African Security Sector Network (ASSN) and the Netherlands Institute of International Relations, Clingendael, to draw on their distinct expertise.

The Facility is jointly steered by the European Commission Foreign Policy Instrument (FPI); the European External Action Service PRISM division (Prevention of conflicts, Rule of law/SSR, Integrated approach, Stabilization and Mediation); and the Facility’s Key Experts. This will
ensure that all requests for support missions are treated in a structured and transparent manner and that deployed expertise best matches the needs and expectations of the Facility’s beneficiaries, and meets the highest standards.

The Facility includes recognized experts with experience in the security, justice and governance sector, supported by a solid, experienced backstopping team drawn from the individual consortium members. The team includes:

  • Thomas Vennen, Head
  • Guillaume Lacaille, Principal Advisor
  • Antoine Hanin, Methodological Advisor
  • Victoria Walker, Backstopping Coordinator
  • Krisztina Szalachy, Administrative Assistant.
