The prevention of violent conflict has traditionally been one of the core aims of SSR. While there are encouraging examples of the important contribution of SSR to preventing violent conflict, the experience of the broader international SSR community confirms that more must be done.
DCAF's UN-World Bank Prevention Report Input was developed as a contribution to the UN - World Bank Group study on the Prevention of Violent Conflict, drawing on examples from across DCAF as well as lessons from interventions further afield.
The preliminary report was first presented at the UN General Assembly in September 2017, and was followed by a series of dissemination events worldwide. The full study was published in March 2018.
