Security Sector Reform process (SSR)

UNOCI was mandated by United Nations Security Council resolutions 2000 and 2062 to provide technical support and accompaniment to the Security Sector Reform process (SSR) in Côte d’Ivoire. In addition, UNOCI, through its SSR Division, participates in meetings of the SSR Working Group and provides the group with its expertise on SSR issues by stressing on the need for a holistic approach and on a democratic control of the security sector, notably through parliament. UNOCI supports the Ivorian Government’s efforts to establish a national SSR strategy. With regard to the consolidation of peace, UNOCI contributes to the organisation of seminars aimed at strengthening capacity and sharing experiences and supports sensitisation activities on SSR aimed at the general population.
