Palestinian Security Sector Governance
A collection of four presentations made at a 2005 one-day workshop titled “Security Sector Reform in the Palestinian Territories: Challenges and Prospects”, held in Ramallah. The workshop brought together more than 60 Palestinian security practitioners, politicians, representatives of civil society and academics to discuss the challenges of Palestinian security governance and the prospects for Security Sector Reform (SSR). Following up on a smaller PASSIA workshop in 2004, this was the first time that security sector governance and reform were discussed in Palestine, and probably even in the Arab world, with large participation from the civil society. The workshop's four sessions addressed key areas of reform: the development of a Palestinian National Security Policy, the institutional set-up of Palestinian security governance, legislative and public oversight mechanisms, and the role of international assistance.
