FOPO, at the request of the Security Sector Reform (SSR) Unit in UN DPKO’s Office of Rule of Law and Security Institutions, has collected and analyzed good practices in six key areas of security sector reform. As part of the process, FOPO produced a unique tool to access and index key SSR documents.
This repository was launched in New York by the SSR Unit at the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of the Netherlands on 26 May 2009. The repository was also presented in Washington on 4 June 2009 at a workshop organized and hosted by the Stimson Center.
As a follow-up to research on the six priority areas, the UN’s SSR Unit asked FOPO to write a broader report on cross-cutting issues, good practices and lessons learned in security sector reform. That research has been completed and the final document will be published by the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations.
