Public finance management (PFM) has been continuously recognised in policies and guidance notes as an important element of sustainable and effective security sector reform (SSR), nonetheless PFM has been inconsistently integrated into SSR processes nor been a deliberate aim of SSR programming. In practice PFM and SSR specific programmes have commonly remained complementary yet distinctly separate. Discussions on finance related issues are often simplified to discussions about the total resource allocation, without exploring the more nuanced questions about how expenditure translates to improved performance and effectiveness of institutions, affordability but also oversight of expenditure.
In October 2017 DCAF-ISSAT organised a panel bringing together both leading advisors on SSR and on security expenditure issues. The panellists explored potential entry points for strengthening the linkages and collaboration between the two communities as a means to ensure PFM is more consistently an integral element of broader SSR processes.
Le World Justice Project (WJP) a publié son Indice sur l’Etat de droit 2017-2018 (2017-2018 WJP Rule of Law Index®), qui mesure l’adhésion à l’Etat de Droit dans 113 pays du monde, à partir de plus de 110,000 enquêtes auprès de ménages, et 3,000 enquêtes auprès d’experts. Basé sur des données primaires, l’Indice sur l’Etat de Droit mesure le rendement de chaque pays sur l’Etat de Droit à travers huit facteurs: Contraintes aux Pouvoirs du Gouvernement, Absence de Corruption, Gouvernement Ouvert, Droits Fondamentaux, Ordre et Sécurité, Application des Règlements, Justice Civile et Justice Pénale.

The UN characterises a HRBA as a “conceptual framework that is normatively based on international human rights standards and operationally directed to promoting and protecting human rights”. Similar to the UN’s HRBA Common Understanding, the European Commission’s rights-based approach (RBA) integrates human rights principles and standards into all aspects of the programme design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. In these rights-based conceptual frameworks, participation, local empowerment, national ownership meaningful inclusion and accountability are central elements to their implementation.
This ISSAT Research Paper explores how a HRBA helps us to get started on the right path to doing things right in SSR.
