Research Areas

Understanding human security is at the core of this project. Community-based policing holds promise but also entails challenges while conventional forms of top-down institutional reform fail to be effective.

The project is organized around regional cases and crosscutting themes, but above all, a set of common research questions and issues inform all efforts in all work packages.

Key issues and questions:

  • Human security
  • Security sector reform in post-conflict contexts
  • Community-oriented policing
