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 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.
