From December 5-7 2018, the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) hosted a workshop entitled ‘Security Force Assistance in Fragile States’. Involving 30 leading academics and practitioners from around the world, the workshop provided fruitful and stimulating discussions and will stimulate future research agendas. Held at the Litteraturhuset, the event was aimed at improving Norwegian approaches to security force assistance.

RWP Director Emily Knowles delivered a presentation. Drawing upon on the lessons learned from reports released by RWP this year, she highlighted the need for remote warfare to be integrated into a broader political strategy which provides a lasting contribution to stability.
