Monitoring and Investigating the Security Sector
This book focuses on the role of Ombuds institutions in monitoring and investigating the security sector. It argues that independent ombudsman institutions can play an important role in strengthening democratic oversight and furthering human and public security. There is only little guidance available for Ombuds institutions on how they can best structure their work on human and public security. This publication intends to close this gap and presents action-oriented recommendations, which have benefited greatly from practical input presented by Ombuds institutions from Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
