Many of the most comprehensive transformations in security sector reform have taken place in conflict-affected states and within the framework of peace processes. The goals of the workshop were to discuss the relevance of security sector reform, to explore linkages between security sector reform and peace processes, and to examine entry points and strategies for addressing and embedding security sector reform in peace processes. The workshop drew on experiences made in, and lessons to be learned from, Southeast Asian countries. In particular, it involved exchanging experiences and fostering dialogue about the challenges and opportunities for a role of parliament in security sector reform in the context of peace processes in Southeast Asia.
