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.

This course will not be open for new applicants, but is reserved for already selected participants from the April Course that had to be cancelled due to COVID 19.
