Defence 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 monograph offers policy-makers, practitioners and academics knowledge 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 knowledge and insights to complement the documentation, interviews and discussions.
