Security sector reform (SSR) is widely recognised as key to conflict
prevention, peace-building, sustainable development and democratisation.
SSR has gained most practical relevance in the context of post-conflict
reconstruction of so-called `failed states‘ and states emerging from
violent internal or inter-state conflict. As this volume shows, almost all
states need to reform their security sectors to a greater or lesser
extent, according to the specific security, political and socio-economic
contexts, as well as in response to the new security challenges resulting
from globalisation and post-9/11 developments. Contributions from
academics and practitioners elaborate on both the conceptual underpinnings
and the practical realities of security sector reform and – a crucial
aspect of post-conflict peace-building – security sector reconstruction.
