Security sector stabilisation

Event - 21 January 2015 17:00 - 18:30 (GMT+00)
​A core challenge for the security and justice sectors in fragile and conflict-affected states is how to both enhance security and make political progress in contexts where the capability and legitimacy of the political authority is lacking and where the environment is characterised by turbulent politics, persistent political violence and weak organisational and institutional capacity. This seminar explored the UK Stabilisation Unit's Security Sector Stabillisation approach.
