Technical Advisor/Senior Researchershow
Over the past year, BICC has participated in the German Government’s SSR-Hub. BICC staff have provided technical expertise on disarmament, demobilisation, and reintegration (DDR) as well as country-specific expertise on DDR to civil servants and diplomats tasked with implementing Germany’s interministerial strategy on security sector reform (SSR) for crisis prevention, conflict management and peacebuilding.
A ‘hub’ is an interface between academia and policy practice. It is a forum for peace and conflict researchers to provide conceptual and methodological input to civil servants and career diplomats. It is also a forum to promote inter-ministerial exchange and knowledge transfer.
