Report by the Secretary General on the OSCE Approach to Security Sector Governance and Reform (SSG/R)

The OSCE has a long track record in supporting States in strengthening the governance of their security sectors and undertaking reforms in line with the Organization’s commitments dating back twenty-five years to the 1994 Code of Conduct on Politico-Military Aspects of Security. Its work includes encouraging co-operation and the sharing of good practices between States, as well as supporting national efforts to reform security institutions and strengthen good governance.

Moreover, particularly through its field operations and institutions, the OSCE provides expertise on many important areas, including police and justice reform, border management and security, democratic oversight, and many more.

This report provides an overview of the efforts made to develop an OSCE approach to SSG/R. It also covers the progress achieved in SSG/R in the period 2014–2018 and focuses on support provided by OSCE executive structures to participating States.
