From the introduction:
Undoubtedly one of the highlights of 2014 was the Africa Forum on Security Sector Reform (SSR), entitled ‘SSR as a Key Component of Stabilisation and Peace-building Processes in Africa’, held in Addis Ababa, 24-26 November 2014.
With 63 mandates and activities undertaken in 2014, the demand for ISSAT services has remained constant. Of particular note is the strong focus on police and justice-related issues. Ten Advisory Support mandates and four Training mandates have focused on police and justice, in addition to the forthcoming ‘Policing and Police Reform’ e-learning course to be launched in 2015. ISSAT has also expanded its geographical reach, working for the first time in Gabon, Moldova, Pakistan and Sierra Leone.
Furthermore, more rigorous internal and financial procedures have been consolidated throughout the year, bringing even greater transparency and more effective project management and operational efficiency to ISSAT’s work.
