Parliamentary Control of Defence and security sector in south East Europe
This study is one of a series of papers requested by the EP's Committee on Foreign Affairs in connection with its role as (rotating) chair of the Parliamentary Troika of the Stability Pact for South East Europe in 2006. The Committee has been organising four parliamentary seminars involving representatives from the relevant specialised parliamentary bodies (committees and sub-committees) from the region. This paper examines the role of parliaments in the democratic control of the defence and security sector in South East Europe. It will be presented and discussed at a workshop on the subject on 16 October 2006 in Zagreb, in the specific context of experience and challenges in countries in South East Europe.
