About this book


It is notorious that the evolution of civil-military relations and the security sector reform in South East Europe has to deal with post-totalitarian and post-conflict challenges. The book treats these issues also in the context of the adaptation to fighting terrorism and the need to be effective in this struggle while continuing the democratic reforms in the individual countries. A team of authors from all South East European states, Western Europe and North America draws the complicated, yet logically evolving picture of the problems in the security sector reform field of the region and proves the validity of the particular research area. The comprehensive study concludes there is a rising maturity of the security sector in the region, but also a variety of uncompleted tasks.
