In the seventh plenary session of the Senior Leaders Seminar, Thomas Dempsey, ACSS Chair for Security Studies, presented on security sector reform in Africa. He opened his presentation with remarks on the ability of the security sector reform (SSR) community of practice (both within African security sectors and among external partners) to promote reform among various elements of the security sector. Dempsey observed that the SSR community of practice was very good at reforms focused on military combat forces. Reforms of civilian oversight mechanisms were more problematic. Reform efforts targeting police, law enforcement, and justice systems had been least successful, and required major improvement.
