This joint communication by the European Commission and the High Representative Federica Mogherini outlines proposed measures to enhance the European Union's effectiveness in supporting stability, security, and development in third countries.
The document first presents the rationale for an EU-wide Security Sector Reform (SSR) support framework, before developing its different elements. The objectives of the strategic framework are presented, namely ensuring security for individuals and the state as well as the legitimacy, good governance, integrity, and sustainability of the security sector. The key elements and principles to achieving these objectives are then detailed, notably enabling broad national ownership, systematic political and policy dialogue, or balancing long-term systemic change with immediate security needs, among others. The joint communication then details areas of engagement for EU support before touching upon the monitoring and evaluation of the policy recommendations.
