The Global Security-Sector-Reform Foundation (GS-F)

The Global Security-Sector-Reform Foundation (GS-F) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, based in Germany, that offers its services supported by a pool of law enforcement and military professionals, who adhere to the Foundation’s core values and mission. This status enables us to share expertise with total transparency to our national, regional and international partners.

In today’s world one can witness the existence of crises and violent incidents on almost every continent. Instead of fully enjoying the rights of personal safety and security, while living in a stable environment and being protected against (organized) crime and terrorism, citizens fear for their life while fundamental needs are neglected. The United Nations Charta reflects these individual fundamental needs, such as Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions;

Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, Quality education, Gender Equality, etc. These Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 Agenda 2030.

Consequently, world peace and international security must be safeguarded. For that purpose, effective collective measures must be taken, aimed at countering and eliminating any threat against peace, suppressing hostile actions and other violations as well as international disputes or situations that could lead to the collapse of peace. This must be achieved through non-violent means in accordance with the principles that lead to international cooperation to solve international problems of economic, social, cultural and humanitarian nature while respecting, promoting and consolidating human rights and fundamental freedoms for all irrespective of race, gender, language or religion.

This requires a national, regional and multilateral approach that must be politically initiated through the use of diplomacy. We view ourselves as a supporting operational element that is able to support process in the areas of crisis prevention, peace building and stabilization.
