About this product
- DescriptionDefence reform has been a major component of Bosnia's stabilisation and nation-building. Though true for many cases of post-conflict transition, it is especially so for Bosnia, which arguably has the most complex state structure in Europe. Ten years on from the start of Bosnia's defence-reform process, Destination NATO records and reviews the Bosnian experience of defence reform. The mograph offers policy-makers, practitioners and academics kwledge of the specific case of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and makes these insights relevant to defence-reform efforts in other contexts. The research is based on original sources and an extensive set of interviews and talks with key individuals including ambassadors, ministers and civil servants, and other senior national and international actors, in addition to discussions with several hundred politicians at local levels, students and NGO representatives. The authors also use their first-hand kwledge and insights to complement the documentation, interviews and discussions.

In 2003 he was assigned to BiH, initially to the staff of the Military Advisor to the High Representative and subsequently to the Defence Reform Section of the OSCE Mission to BiH. In this capacity he participated in the implementation of the initial BiH defence reform agreement of 2003 (two entity armies under one state-level roof) including, inter alia, developing detailed structures for the new state-level defence organisations. In 2005 he was re-assigned to the newly-established NHQSa to lead the staff responsible for political-military aspects of defence and security sector reform in BiH, and provided conceptual, analytical and policy support leading to the final defence reform agreement of 2005 (a single, integrated military force in BiH).
