African Security Sector Network

Founded in 2003, The African Security Sector Network (ASSN), one of ISSAT's key partners, operates through indigenous knowledge, expertise and resources. 

The network is headquartered in Accra, Ghana, with regional hubs in Addis Ababa, Johannesburg and Nairobi. 

ASSN exists to facilitate progress towards the achievement of effective and democratically governed security sectors across Africa. It pursues this mission by working to strengthen the capacities of African governments, national security institutions, parliaments, intergovernmental organisations and civil society groups to undertake and own SSR programmes. The organisation also strives to expand the concept of African SSR through sustained research, publication and training.
