10:00am - 12:00pm | The EU's Role in Security Sector Reform

Does the European Union (EU) have a comparative advantage in reforming security sector institutions? Over several decades, the EU has reformed defense and interior ministries in 21 new member states. The EU also deployed military and police missions in the Balkans and peace operations around the world. What can the United States learn from these examples?

In this meeting of the Security Sector Reform Working Group, a panel of distinguished experts will address these questions and discuss the findings of a forthcoming USIP Special Report on “The European Union’s Experience With Security Sector Governance."
