About this study
Security sector reorm (SSR) has moved rapidly up the international aid agenda during the past decade. There isgrowing recognition that SSR is undamentally a political activity and that, to be efective, external assistancemust be careully tailored to the political and institutional context in which it is being delivered.This Nigeria study was part o a comparative research project (which included Sri Lanka and Uganda) whichhad two aims: rstly, to enhance understanding about who makes decisions about security, the actors whichinuence decision-making, and the consequences or the security o people; and secondly, to suggest ways oincorporating such knowledge more efectively into UK SSR programming.The study was conducted by the Conict, Security and Development Group at King’s College London in collabo-ration with the Centre or Democracy and Development in Nigeria, the Social Scientists’ Association in Sri Lanka,and the Centre or Basic Research in Uganda.
