Security Sector Reform in Ukraine

For more than a decade, PSSI actively implemented numerous projects focused on Security Sector Reform in Ukraine. The main goal is not only to provide the interested parties with know-how gathered during the transformation of foreign and security agenda in the Czech Republic (Czechoslovakia) in the 1990s, but also to offer tailor-made trainings and consultations on security-related challenges.

PSSI focused its activities mainly on Ukrainian regions and cities (e.g. Charkiv, Odessa, Slaviansk, Kramatorsk, Kherson etc.), where it has developed a rich network of partners. These include members of the armed forces, police, local administration, NGOs, and volunteers.

Among the topics covered by our projects were: transformation of security forces; cyber security; police training and community policing; integrity tests and anti-corruption measures in security forces; and combating organized crime, human trafficking, asset seizure. 

Our activities were complemented by e-learning component.

As part of its activities, PSSI staff also participated at the annual essembly of the Eastern Partnership Forum, entitled “Building a Common Secure and Democratic Future.” The event took place between 28-29 November in Brussels. Find more information about the event here.
