Annual Report 2018

The DCAF Annual Report 2018 is the first to carry the Centre’s new name, DCAF – Geneva Centre for Security Sector Governance, and to bear the new branding, both of which came into force on 2 May 2019. This year, we have opted for a more concise approach to reporting the highlights of our work throughout 2018 in delivering SSR expertise internationally, supporting international SSR actors to be more effective in their assistance, and shaping the SSG/R policy landscape.
