ESDC Core Course on Security Sector Reform

The reform of the national security sector has become one of the major topics of international concern regarding crisis management and post-crisis recovery during the last decade.
The focus on traditional security actors such as the police, the military, the judiciary, prison personnel, border guards, and intelligence has been complemented by a more comprehensive view on human security, bringing the basic needs and physical, social and economic security and safety of individuals and the population to the centre of attention.
