In Liberia and Sierra Leone, strategies to reform and reconstruct the security sector are focused on re-establishing the state's monopoly of force. However, little attention is given to the array of non-state actors that often play a major role in how individuals and communities experience security. This volume addresses this gap by applying a human security approach to security provision across these two contexts.
