Virtual Roundtable around People Centred Security and Justice: What have we been missing?
Whilst the SSG/R agenda has been influenced by the concept of human security since it was conceived in the 1990s; in practice, over two decades of SSG/R programming has lacked a necessary connection between the “statebuilding” approach and community-level peace and security dividends. As results from donor-assisted state-building efforts are flailing across many contexts, and as populism and criticism of the State and its role is globally rising, we need to reexamine security and justice programming.

ISSAT is joined online by researchers in the area of security and justice, from Mogadishu, Juba, and Ouagadougou to scope home-grown concepts, systems and practices which provide people with safety, protection and access to justice. Equally, representatives from international organisations will be reflecting their experiences in engaging with security and justice aspects at the grassroots level, as well as sub-national and national levels. This Roundtable is in the framework of a Dutch, Swiss and Swedish joint mandate for ISSAT. The work put forward a reconceptualised model for programming which better articulates the link between the community and the State.

Please note that the event will be recorded.
