Between the 17th and 19th of March 2017, The Brenthurst Foundation, in partnership with the British Peace Support Team (South Africa), the Africa Centre for Strategic Studies (Washington, DC) and the South African National Defence Force, gathered at Spier in Stellenbosch, South Africa, to discuss the role of the security sector in Africa's Development,

The participants included a mix of current and serving defence personnel principally from Africa, but also Europe, the United States and Latin America; former Presidents of Nigeria and South Africa, Olusegu Obasanjo and Kgalema Motlanthe; ambassadors and international officials; business persons; and analysts.

As per guidelines for Brenthurst Foundation dialogues, the presentations and discussions were not for attriution.
