Ukraine Security Sector


DCAF has worked extensively on security governance issues with a wide range of Ukrainian stakeholders since 2001. The foundation for many activities was provided by a cooperation platform with the Defence and Security Committee of the Verkhovna Rada on security sector reform, legislative development, transparency, and accountability issues active between 2003 and 2009. This platform also included the Ministry of Defence, National Security and Defence Council (NSDC), National Institute for Strategic Studies (NISS), Border Guards department, Intelligence Services (SBU), Ombuds Institution and civil society organisations. DCAF has also cooperated with security sector institutions in bilateral and other cooperative formats.
