The SEE region has been the focus of DCAF’s engagement since the Centre’s establishment. DCAF’s strategy paper 2012-2015 calls for the Centre to continue its intense support to the region in the future. To improve delivery of DCAF’s services in the region, the Centre has maintained a regional office in Ljubljana since 2008.
