This is the inaugural brief of the Centre for Security Governance in its  2.0 series. Published on 23 October 2014 under the title of “Security Sector Reform in the Central African Republic: Chronicle of a Death Foretold,” it was written by Teodora Fuior and CSG Senior Fellow David Law.

This brief looks into the implementation of SSR in CAR, the deficiencies of its design, and the missteps made in its implementation. Its central finding is that the failure of the peacebuilding process in CAR was predestined, stemming from the earliest stages of SSR implementation in the country.
