Democratic Security Sector Governance

The Handbook is the product of a research project initiated in January 2005 by DCAF in cooperation with the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR). Rather than examining the external aspects of the issue, such as the conduct of the armed forces in their operations, the handbook focuses on the internal aspects of human rights and fundamental freedoms of armed forces personnel. In addition to contributing to the enforcement of existing standards, the project   also contains recommendations for participating states of measures that should be taken in order to ensure that policies and practices are in full compliance with international human rights standards and OSCE human dimension commitments.
