Security and justice reform: overhauling and tinkering with current programming approaches

Research reports and studies
April 2014
This report brings together some of the key points of discussion from a one-day workshop organised by ODI in January 2014,  ‘From policy to programme implementation: Examining the political economy of security and justice reform.' It also draws from responses to an anonymous questionnaire of workshop participants, and on-going thinking in ODI in relation to the political economy of security and justice programming.

While the scope of the workshop was focused broadly on security and justice reform, discussions centred on DFID in particular given the background of the participants in the room. As a result, this report necessarily focuses on DFID, although its insights and ideas are relevant to other donors and funders working on SJR.
