In spite the growing inroads of democracy since the turn of the millennium and the resultant rising awareness for human rights and rule of law, security challenges are increasing worldwide retrograding the pace of peace, safety and development expectations to human societies in geometric portions. This problem has been traced to opportunities of advancement in human intellect and technology, the vagaries of climate change, environmental degradation, over population and urbanization. The expansion of the civic space and the abuse of democratization in poor governance are further throwing up complex manifestations and typologies of insecurities. Dealing with the myriad and hydra-headed threats to local, regional and global insecurities is increasingly becoming intellect dependent, because of it multi-dimensional, multi-disciplinary and multi-tracked approaches to complex multi-layered management systems of local, regional and global tiers of cooperation and collaborations. Security sector governance is the system around which governmental and non-governmental sector coalesce by building synergies across the strategic spectrum. WISER’s commitment is to provide a world-class non-government Center of Excellence for building essential leadership, as well as generating matching intellection solutions to feed the complex processes of modern security sector governance delivery.
