Security sector reform has become an accepted part of the international peacebuilding and post-conflict reconstruction agenda. It is posited as a crucial aspect in the creation of an enabling environment for development and stability.
Experience with the implementation of security sector reform programmes has been varied. It is increasingly being argued that current approaches to reform are unable to translate ambitious reform principles into a practical agenda that results in improved security and justice service delivery. This paper seeks to provide a brief analysis of and insight into conceptual and practical challenges that affect the conceptualisation and implementation of security sector reform programmes in Africa.
