Abstract:

It is commonly acknowledged that the incidents of civil war and other intrastate conflict are in decline. At the same time, vulnerable states, or states lacking the capacity to meet their obligations to citizens, and without a monopoly on force, offer a fertile ground for political violence, terrorism, drug-trafficking, contraband smuggling and a host of other crimes. These are generally linked together and viewed as mutually reinforcing, although some contend that the coincidence of terrorism, political violence, and crime does not necessarily establish causality. We argue that coordination in the security sector presents significant challenges in that it necessitates the patching together of rather disparate disciplines in the political, law enforcement, intelligence, and diplomatic domains. The capacity of recipient states to absorb donor assistance is discussed; our determination being that this is less critical to effectiveness and coherence than a range of hurdles facing donors, including accountability, coordination, leadership, and alignment of what they want with what recipients want. A review of G8 efforts in security sector capacity building leads to analysis of the use of 'whole of country' approaches to address state fragility. Obstacles in interagency coordination are also examined, as are alignment and burden sharing, the latter two as potential assets in security sector capacity building that have been underutilized. In a final section, we review what can be learned from cases of successful coordination.
