For the past decade, international donors have made efforts to reform the security sector in Guinea-Bissau – yet success has been elusive. Why have interna- tional reform concepts largely failed? By exploring reform attempts in the police sector, Christoph Kohl investigates the causes which led up to this situation. He identifies a number of problems concerning among others the communication or the course of action between the International Community and Bissau-Guinean institutions and gives advice on how to improve the solutions to security sector related issues.
