Successful security reform in transitional and weak states requires a balanced approach between national interests and international objectives for long term global peace and stability. Shaheen’s experts are highly experienced practitioners in the legal, policy and operational challenges that arise in security sector reform in post-conflict, transitional and developing countries. Our Teams included local and international experts experienced in the complexities of these engagements that mandate long term strategy for overcoming cross cultural and geopolitical pre-conditions to achieve regional stability and human security.


An essential component of development in any sector is training and and transfer of technical knowledge. In the security sector, achieving an effective, responsive and accountable level of governance needs to go beyond the traditional forms of training. Shaheen RM mentoring and training programs focus on designing knowledge transfer that underlines the technical but is localized for the culture and educational profile of the target security personnel. The training methodologies utilized need to ensure that the logic and context of capacity building in play will have the long term affect for improved security outcomes.


Monitoring and reporting are often relied upon as means to place pressure on individuals and parties in conflict or emergency situations to strengthen the protection of civilians and deliver aid effectively. In high risk, emergency and development scenarios, monitoring and evaluation of relief and aid programming is challenging due to physical, security and humanitarian constraints. Shaheen RM responds to these challenges by supporting our Client’s with expert M&E professionals with the latest tools and methodologies relevant for each context.
