Security Sector Reform (SSR) aims to improve the safety of women, men, girls and boys through a more effective, affordable, accountable and transparent security sector. It places technical reforms in a political process where local ownership is key. SSR is an essential part of conflict prevention and peacebuilding around the world in current national processes and through international support. The FBA offers a one-week SSR course for mid-level to senior practitioners where the conceptual approaches are combined with practical examples and methods for improved results.
Throughout this five-day course, participants will explore the concept of SSR, building on democratic principles, human rights, gender equality and the rule of law. Experts and experienced practitioners will share theory and practical case studies to illustrate the comprehensive process of SSR. Specific technical areas and program approaches will be highlighted within the context of the wider, holistic process of reform. The challenges and opportunities arising in post-conflict situations will be discussed and analyzed with a focus on sustainable reforms, local ownership and political commitment.
The sessions will include the following topics:
