Policy and Research

Who we are

The Policy & Research Division (PRD) produces empirically-grounded and policy-oriented comparative research on global thematic topics relating to security sector governance.

PRD has developed internationally renowned expertise on a variety of topics, specifically parliamentary oversight of the security sector, intelligence oversight, ombuds institutions, and emerging security challenges, such as global health and SSR.

PRD is also responsible for working with multilateral organisations, such as the UN and OSCE, to improve and harmonize their security sector governance programming, particularly in the context of the UN’s Sustaining Peace Agenda and Agenda 2030.

Finally, PRD conducts research on global approaches to monitoring and evaluating projects related to security sector governance.
