Introduction to Security Sector Reform in Peace Support

The international community is increasingly focused on the challenges of insecurity and conflict as a barrier to political, economic and social development. It is clear that if states are to create the condition in which they can escape from a downward spiral wherein insecurity, criminalisation and under-development are mutually reinforcing, socio-economic and security dimensions must be tackled simultaneously.

 The traditional concept of security is being redefined to include not only the security of states but also a clear focus on the safety and well being of their peoples. With the recognition that security and development are inextricably linked, this has resulted in greater focus and scrutiny of how security and justice are provided in countries. Security Sector Reform (SSR) has now become a central component of efforts to overcome the cycle of conflict and the causes of fragility, from the Sahel to Sierra Leone and from Serbia to the Solomon Islands.

 However, a key challenge faced by the international community is the lack of operational capacity to support Security Sector Reform. Given that the reform of security and justice institutions is both a political and technical exercise, it requires capacity and support that cuts across government institutions and agencies. It is for this reason that the Bangladesh Institute of Peace Support Operation Training (BIPSOT) will organise an introductory training on Security Sector Reform. The SSR training will take place in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and will be carried out in collaboration with the International Security Sector Advisory Team (ISSAT) of the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF).

 The course aims to build both SSR knowledge and skills. Through an interactive and practical training approach, this course will help participants to:

  • Better understand the concept and evolution of SSR, including actors, concepts and principles;
  • Understand the political nature of SSR and the challenges faced when ‘supporting’ SSR processes in conflict affected or fragile states;
  • Develop the basic skills required to undertake SSR programming;
  • Gain practical experience in the design of an SSR programme
  • Use concrete cases to build on lessons learned and apply concepts to practice.

The following list is indicative of some of the sessions that would be delivered in the course:

  • Introduction to the concept of SSR and evolving approaches and international policy frameworks for SSR
  • SSR, from concept to practice
  • Scoping the security sector
  • Gender-responsive SSR
  • Principles and characteristics of SSR programming
  • SSR programming in post-conflict contexts
  • The role of non-state actors in SSR
  • The challenge of coordination in SSR programmes

 

Target Audience

Professionals who have recently begun to work or who plan to work on SSR and/or related issues

Language

The course will be conducted entirely in English.

Pre-requisites
