The purpose of this paper is to highlight the need for conflict sensitivity in security and justice sector reform (SJSR) programming. It is intended to help those involved in designing or implementing SJSR programming understand how conflict sensitivity could ensure their programming avoids inadvertantly contributing to conflict.  Note: This document does not give guidance on measuring results of conflict sensitivity in SJSR programming.  Key questions this document addresses:  What is conflict sensitivity and why is it relevant to SJSR programming?  How might SJSR programming become inadvertantly caught up in conflict dynamics?  What tools are available to enable conflict sensitivity in SJSR programming?  ...
