The Report on Parliamentary Oversight of Security Sector (the Report) is the main product of the Cooperation Agreement between DCAF and the Associated Implementation Partner, as follows:

  1. Analytica from Macedonia;
  2. Centre for Security Studies from Bosnia and Herzegovina;
  3. Institut Alternativa from Montenegro; and
  4. Kosovar Centre for Security Studies from Kosovo.

The Report will be instrumental in the elaboration by DCAF of the yearly Monitoring and Evaluation Report on the Framework Project „Fostering Parliamentary Oversight of the Security Sector in Western Balkans.“ Also, the annual report will include four quarterly reports of associated implementation partner with an overview of the most important national events relevant to the democratic governance of the security sector in each of four country in Western Balkan.

The Report on Parliamentary Oversight of Security Sector will assess the performance of Parliament in the democratic oversight of security over the year 2012. The assessment will observe clear criteria, derived from the basic functions of a parliamentary institution (representation, legislation, oversight) and from the conditions that empower parliament to fulfil these basic functions (legal authority, institutional capacity and political will).
