  • Examine sub-sector reform processes targeting statutory and non-statutory security and justice providers from the perspective of the security sector as whole.
  • Provide participants with opportunities to learn about SSR through a series of hands-on exercises in which they are exposed to many of the tools and techniques that SSR practitioners use on the ground.

The Mandate outputs/products:

The first part of the training will include components of the DCAF-ISSAT’s level 1 introductory training.
