The Security Sector Reform Monitor is a quarterly publication that tracks developments and trends in the ongoing security sector reform (SSR) processes of five countries: Afghanistan, Burundi, Timor-Leste, Haiti and Southern Sudan. The second edition of the Security Sector Reform Monitor: Southern Sudan outlines the challenges that non-state armed groups and the proliferation of small arms and light weapons pose to the nascent security sector of Southern Sudan. The Monitor analyzes efforts at civilian disarmament to date, and suggests that a new approach to the problem, based on community engagement rather than coercion, should be encouraged.
