International Security Sector Support: Navigating political obstacles and opportunities in conflict-affected states
The UN has repeatedly called attention to the crucial role of security sector reform in underpinning peace and stability in countries affected by violent conflict, including a 2022 report of the Secretary General. But we still know little about when and how international efforts can help bring about professional, effective and accountable security forces as part of broader peace- and statebuilding efforts, and in the face of domestic and international obstacles.

Drawing on new research, the event will examine how the political interests and role of security actors in conflict-affected countries interact with the diversity of donor views and preferences in the context of peace- and statebuilding efforts. It will then turn to the question of how international actors should shape their security sector reform interventions to be able to navigate this interplay and contribute to better security organization and provision.
