The podcast series "Donors Talk SSR" highlights areas and practices that are important to the international community in their efforts to provide strategic and operational assistance to support governance, security, and justice reforms in fragile and conflict-affected environments.
Each episode hosts an international expert. Together we explore good practices and identify gaps in both new and old SSG/R themes.
The first episode features our Senior SSR Advisor, Hervé Auffret. Hervé's 33-year old military career, served his home-country, France, as well as multiple nations across Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East to support human security and defence strategy design. In this episode, Hervé shares insights on the importance of the "human factor" in any defence institution.
The second episode features our SSR Advisor, Viola Csordas. Viola’s work has focused on the link between SSG/R and livelihood issues such as climate and environmental security, disaster reduction, and food security. In this episode, Viola shares insights and on-the-ground examples to highlight the important role the security and justice sector must play in ensuring basic human needs as well as ways in which the international community can operationalise the triple nexus.
