Transparency and Accountability in the Defence Sector
DCAF has been involved in establishing transparency and accountability mechanisms across the security sector since 2001, with a special focus on South East Europe and the Former Soviet Union. DCAF programmes on transparency & accountability issues aim to provide stakeholders with the tools needed to ensure good practices in management of resources, procurement and policy formulation. Relevant platforms have included the Partnership Action Plan on Defence Institution Building (PAP-DIB) and the Partnership for Peace (PfP) Consortium of Defence Academies. DCAF has also cooperated with Transparency International UK on the Defence Against Corruption Programme, NATO on "Building Integrity and Reducing Corruption in the Defence Sector" and with the Stability Pact for South East Europe on transparency building.
