Democratic Governance of the Security Sector

The United Nations Inter-Agency Task Force on SSR is developing interim technical guidance notes to support their work in the field. Under the auspices of the task force, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has mandated DCAF to draft the technical guidance note on 'Democratic Governance of the Security Sector'

The main objective of the project is to develop a guidance note which provides clear guidance to UN practitioners on how to support national efforts to strengthen the democratic governance of the security sector.

The guidance note draws on previous work DCAF has supported in collaboration with UNDP in the Pacific. The note is based on a combination of desk and field research, including case studies on Bangladesh, the Central African Republic, Guinea Bissau, and Kosovo. The case studies will be published in the course of 2011.
