DCAF works with governments, parliaments, security providers and civil society organizations in Europe and Central Asia to help ensure the efficient, effective, responsible and accountable provision of security, and to strengthen democratic security sector governance. We operate in Southeast Europe, Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus and lead smaller projects in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. In recent years, DCAF has placed particular focus on parliamentary and civil society oversight, police cooperation, as well as defence and intelligence reform issues. DCAF’s regional office in Ljubljana, Slovenia, ensures improved delivery of DCAF’s services in the Europe region.
