DCAF works with governments, parliaments, security providers and civil society organisations in Southeast Europe to help ensure the efficient, effective, responsible and accountable provision of security and to strengthen democratic security sector governance. The SEE region has been the focus of DCAF’s engagement since the Centre’s establishment. DCAF’s strategy paper 2016 – 2019 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.

13.12.2016 Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina: DCAF organised together with the Sarajevo Centre for Security Studies a Roundtable on the Use of Intrusive Methods of Information Collection in Bosnia and Hercegovina. The roundtable gathered more than 40 participants, including members of parliament, magistrates, representatives of the intelligence community and the Ministry of Security in BIH, as well as professors and researchers from academia and civil society. The event provided local stakeholders with a first opportunity to discuss how intrusive methods of information collection (and especially electronic communications surveillance) are regulated and implemented, or what safeguards are in place against their abuse and misuse.
