Security Sector Reform

Topic Guide: SSR in South-Eastern and Eastern Europe

This regional guide by Huma Haider and Shiv Bakrania provides an introduction to literature on security sector reform (SSR) in South Eastern and Eastern Europe, focusing on the Balkans and the Southern Caucasus. It highlights key issues and priority areas in the regions and countries, and identifies relevant regional and country texts that cover a number of security sectors. Research on SSR in the Balkans is fairly extensive. There is less available literature, however, on the Southern Caucasus. As such, there is a greater concentration of resources on the Balkans in this topic guide.
