This first volume in the Security and Defence Management Series focuses on practical aspects of democratic defence management through the eyes of practioners. Outlining in simple terms the key issues defence professionals must address to ensure good governance of the defence sector from within the defence establishment, the book provides an introduction to these issues for new defence professionals in transition democracies.
The book series Security and Defence Management explains principles and approaches to formulating and implementing security and defence policies, presents results of policy-related research, and provides examples of good practice in transforming and managing security sector organisations, organisational processes and resources. Its intended audience includes practitioners from the legislative and executive branches of government, security and defence professionals and civil society organisations engaged in making security and defence organisations more transparent, accountable, effective and efficient.
