Security Sector Reform in Lesotho: Observations from a Three-day Dialogue Series

"The aim of this paper is to highlight the main challenges facing security sector reform in Lesotho, drawing on the key themes that emerged from a three-day dialogue series held in Lesotho in April 2000. The primary aim of the dialogue series is to encourage healthy civil military relations in a country where these relations have been subjected to considerable stress. With this aim in mind, the Lesotho Ministry of Defence, the Lesotho Institute for Public Administration and the African Civil-Military Relations project based at the Institute for Security Studies initiated a dialogue series."
