          • Legal Framework of the Democratic Control of Armed Forces and the Security Sector: Norms and Reality/ies

          • Ed. Biljana Vankovska, Foreword by Ambassador Theodor Winkler, Geneva DCAF. Belgrade, 2001. Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of the Armed Forces; Belgrade: Centre for Civil-Military Relations.

        • The Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) encourages and supports countries in their efforts to streng­t­hen democratic and civilian control of their force structures, and promotes international cooperation in this field.

          This book is a concrete result of a conference organized by the Centre in addressing an issue that has mainly been tackled in the past in a cursory manner, but which calls for deeper considerations: the gap between normative efforts and actual reality in the domain of legal reform.

          The Seminar titled Legal framing of democratic control of armed forces and the security sector: norms and reality/ies was simultaneously the launching event of a DCAF working group - the “Working Group on Legal Aspects of the Democratic Control of Armed Forces”. The Seminar was held in Geneva on 3-5 May 2001. Having brought together in a single forum more than thirty academics, experts, practitioners from different political and national settings as well as representatives from NGOs and international organizations (NATO, OSCE) the seminar aimed at making an intellectual contribution through  brainstorming and open exchange of ideas and experiences. The quali­ty of the papers presented indicates that one can expect this book to trigger further debate on the significance and shortcomings of the legal dimension of democratic control of armed forces in transition co­untries.

          In accordance with its basic mission and purpose the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces is devoted to supporting future follow-ups that will contribute to further development of legal interest and expertise in the field of civil-military relations and security sector reform. Not by coincidence, this book is published as a joint effort of DCAF and the Belgrade Centre for Civil-Military Relations. The Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces strongly beli­e­v­es that a close cooperation with local partners on the spot is the best way to foster the dissemination of knowledge and for encouraging furt­her debate on the key issues related to democratic control of armed for­ces.

          Ambassador Theodor Winkler, Director, Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces
