Reforming Security Sector Governance in South Asia
The Institute, with support from the International Development Research Centre, undertook a project on security sector reforms in South Asia . The objectives of the project were to develop well-researched status papers on the South Asian countries to contribute to educating civil society of the need for reforming the security sector; critically examine military doctrines, defence policies, equipments acquisitions, policies and their rationale in order to make these most cost effective, transparent and less threatening to others and to their own people; evaluate defence expenditures with an aim to recommend how to bring these down, and through a regional workshop and exchange of ideas, develop the concept of cooperative security in South Asia and contribute to reducing the propensity for conflict.


In April 2008, the IPCS organized a conference on Security Sector Governance in South Asia in Bangkok .
