This one day Training Course on Fragility, Security and Development in the context of EU external action is organized by the EU Commission's Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO) Fragility unit. It will take place in Brussels from 19 to 21 May 2015. The first day will look at increased potential and ambition – the EU Comprehensive Approach; the second will focus on the EU comprehensive approach in practice – EU instruments; and the third day, presented by ISSAT, will discuss the Comprehensive Approach and Security Sector Reform. The EU has asked ISSAT to cover the case of Mali.

The training should help practitioners working in the field of security and development cooperation to develop an accurate understanding of the institutional set-up of the EU and the relevant operating procedures and become familiar with the complementary roles played by different policy instruments and different actors.

EU SSR Policy - Country case studies Mali, DRC and Ukraine

EU mandate in DRC, Mali, Ukraine 13.09.2015. - 11.03.2016.

The Council Conclusions of 18 May 2015 launched the process of reviewing the EU SSR policies by mid-2016 with the aim of developing an EU-wide strategic framework for supporting SSR. Within this timeframe a certain number of steps needed to be carried out to take stock of where the EU stands in terms of SSR. These included what are the main lessons identified over the last decade, what has been learned and how could the good practices be integrated and bring added value to future EU support to SSR processes in partner countries.

This mandate was to support the EU in this stocktaking exercise, focusing on the analysis of three countries where the EU has supported SSR processes: DRC, Mali and Ukraine. The main objectives were to:

1) capture recent and hands-on experience from EU support to SSR across the different regions of the world;

2) analyse what works/does not work; and

3) identify the good practices to inform the new EU-wide strategic framework on SSR
