This webinar was a cooperative effort of the Netherlands Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Defence. It was supported by HCSS and KVBK, and hosted by Leiden University. In this webinar, several subject matter experts will present and discuss their views and approaches concerning Security Sector Reform (SSR) as a strategic policy tool.
“For years the international community has spent considerable effort to promote stability by reforming and strengthening security sectors in fragile and conflict prone states.
These efforts have met with mixed results, however. The international community must therefore find alternative ways to better understand security sectors’ potential contribution to stability.”
