Intergovernmental organisations (IGOs) play a crucial role in security
sector reform and governance (SSR/G). In virtually all instances of recent
and current SSR programme delivery, IGOs have either led the SSR effort or
supported the lead provided by other actors. How this role is played is of
vital importance for the prospects of fostering durable security and
development in a wide range of countries. This volume looks at a selection
of organisations that have been in the forefront of SSR activity or that
have the potential for significantly developing their SSR agendas in the
future. These IGOs are the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and
Development (OECD), the European Union (EU), the North Atlantic Treaty
Organisation (NATO), the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in
Europe (OSCE), the Council of Europe (CoE), the Economic Organisation of
West African States (ECOWAS), the World Bank (WB) and the International
Monetary Fund (IMF). This year’s volume is divided into four parts:
conceptual issues; case studies on how IGOs have approached SSR in
programme areas that are particularly representative of their overall
action; case studies on the way various actors, primarily but not
exclusively IGOs, have worked with each other in implementing SSR and
supporting its implementation; and conclusions drawn from the various
case studies as well as policy recommendations for future IGO work in the
area of SSR/G.
