The aim of this paper is to contribute to operationalising the donors' policy commitment to local ownership of SSR. The emphasis is on political and practical guidance to donors rather than on analytical depth or a comprehensive review of SSR. The document includes planning and diagnostic tools that could be used by external actors supporting SSR as well as by local actors engaged in security sector reform. The tools and recommendations are based on the authors experience.
