20 years of expertise

Over the last 20 years we have worked with many valued partners, donors, friends, and supporters. Thanks to them, we expanded our work from supporting the reform of security sector institutions in Central and Eastern Europe, to working with national and international partners on reform and good governance work in more than 80 countries around the world.

Our vision is a world in which human and national security are provided within democratically governed, accountable and effective security sectors. We believe this is an essential contributor to creating sustainable peace and development.

We are thankful to our donors and partners who make our work possible. Watch their testimonials to learn why they work with us and find out how we promote good SSG/R on our dedicated web page.
