Democratic Security Sector Governance

This publication focuses on practical aspects of democratic defence management through the eyes of practitioners. Outlining in simple terms the key issues defence professionals must address to ensure good governance of the defence sector from within the defence establishment, the book provides an introduction to these issues for new defence professionals in transition democracies. The objective is to explain principles and approaches to formulating and implementing security and defence policies, presenting results of policy-related research, and providing examples of good practice in transforming and managing security sector organisations, organisational processes and resources. Intended audience includes practitioners from the legislative and executive branches of government, security and defence professionals and civil society organisations engaged in making security and defence organisations more transparent, accountable, effective and efficient.
