How can local actors improve human security and state security in conflict-affected areas? What challenges affect the local government’s ability to promote the rule of law? How can citizens be enabled to actively use the law? What are the most recent experiences in international Security Sector Reform policy frameworks? How can human security approaches be effective in the context of violent extremism? And how can inclusive local economic development contribute to stabilisation and sustaining peace? This two-week intensive training course will equip you with practical and academic insights to help you tackle these questions and work towards community security.

Conflict and its myriad forms — interstate war, intrastate rebellion, armed militia’s destabilizing a region, violent extremism or social exclusion — affect all, especially at the local level. Understanding the root causes and drivers of conflict is one of several steps necessary to ensure local security.

In this training, applicants will gain specific knowledge, tailored approaches and practical tools to help applicants conduct a thorough conflict and security analysis. International experts will guide the discussion to impart a better understanding of how stakeholders at the different levels of government can promote positive conflict transformation.

Specific attention will be given to the concept of community security and its underlying principles. Using a diverse set of case studies, along with interactive workshop sessions, applicants will learn how to develop and implement a security plan.

Security at the local level can only be reached with an integrated approach focusing on immediate quick-wins and sustainable long-term solutions. Not only the security and justice sector, but all actors at the different governance layers play an essential role in achieving this goal.
