Abstract:In the dawn of the cold war and the wake of 9/11, did the discussion around security and its efficient governance become of great concern to every nation. Especially with the increasing globalization of our world, do national security concerns reach further than the visible borders. Conflict and resulting insecurity was a byproduct of such globalization, and as such, now calls for an integrated and coherent solution. In this environment did a school of thought evolve around the best practices of sustaining physical security of citizens and the process of democratizing such goals. The European policing mission in Afghanistan is a milestone for the school of thought on security and serves as a role model for the implementation of an SSR abroad. Its potential is theoretically dominant and thus a good basis to solving a conflict situation as difficult as that of Afghanistan. In practice however are many limitations to such theories evident. This paper will analyze and try to find a solution to the security problem in Afghanistan by using the theory of security sector reform. The study will evolve around the cases of the Netherlands and Germany and their respective contribution towards the European Policing Mission (EUPOL).
