Target country


The German government has initiated a consultation process in preparation for its new inter-agency guidelines on crisis engagement and peacebuilding. As part of this consultation process, the collaborative research centre (SFB 700) "Governance in Areas of Limited Statehood" at the Freie Universität Berlin will bring together experts from civil society, academia, practice and policy for a debate on how to improve Germany’s future engagement in supporting security and justice sector reforms in view of the inherent challenges of state-building.

ISSAT has been invited to provide input for a working group on how to locate the 'line of best fit' for supporting effective and legitimate security and justice sectors, and to be a resource person for this working group.
