Let me start my words by quoting from a Security Sector Reform inventory (a gaps analysis paper) that just became available. It encompasses the target states of the Stability Pact. We commissioned this analysis from York University in Canada at the end of last year. We hope to release the project before the end of this year. The inventory is a living document to be updated as required and it contains over 400 entries. It is the largest database that exists in terms of security sector reform-related activities in the region.

There is also an indicative gaps analysis. Unsurprisingly, one of the first sentences of this analysis is, "one of the most striking conclusions to be drawn from this project is the overall lack of coordination among international actors within the area of security sector reform. At the regional level, this gap is beginning to be filled by the SP on a sector-by-sector basis through such initiatives as the Task Force on Trafficking in Human Beings and the Regional Implementation Plan on Small Arms and Light Weapons Proliferation. As well, other regional initiatives, such as the SECI's Regional Centre for Combating Transborder Crime, are also beginning to come to terms with the problem of regional coordination within particular areas of the security sector."

The analysis goes on: "Perhaps more problematic, however, is the lack of coordination among internationally led initiatives within particular target states. Even within the same sector, international actors often appear to be only marginally aware of other international initiatives."
