Democratic Civilian Control of Armed Forces in the Post-Cold War Era by Alexandre Lambert
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


At the beginning of the 21st century, reform and democratic control of the security sector have become key challenges as much for the Euro-Atlantic region as for the developing world. These challenges are increasingly recognised as a fundamental requirement for coping with the emerging new risks and challenges and for managing the dynamic political changes in the post-Cold War era. Therein, security sector reform and security sector governance have become pre-conditions of conflict prevention, human security, economic development and progress towards democracy, stability and peace. This volume systematically analyses both the framework and criteria of democratic civilian control of armed forces and security sector governance in their dynamic evolution in the post-Cold War era. Based on an inter-disciplinary and holistic analytical approach, it critically assesses the normative and functional value and importance of the principle of democratic civilian control within contemporary security architectures.
