ISSAT is a Department of DCAF. ISSAT was established in 2008 in response to the need to increase the capacity of the international community to support Security Sector Governance/Reform (SSG/R) processes, to enhance the effectiveness and quality of SSG/R programming, and to facilitate the coordination and coherence of international assistance for nationally driven SSR/G processes. It provides practical support to the international community in its efforts to improve security and justice, primarily in conflict-affected and fragile states. It does this by working with a group of member states and multilateral institutions (International Partners Group Members, or IPGMs) to develop and promote good security and justice reform practices and principles, and by helping its members to build their capacity to support national and regional security and justice reform processes. The ISSAT provides a deployable capacity to support its IPGMs. Within ISSAT, the professional development and training (PDT) Service Line focusses on training design and delivery, professional development advice and mentoring for the benefit of our IPGMs to enhance the their ability to deploy strategic SSG/R advisors.
