The Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) is a Swiss-based international organisation dedicated to assisting states – both developed and emerging democracies – in advancing good security sector governance, within a democratic framework and in respect of the rule of law. DCAF provides in-country advisory support and practical assistance programs to states that seek to strengthen governance of their security sector. DCAF works directly with national and local governments, parliaments, civil society, international organisations and defence and security forces.
DCAF currently has 61 member states, including Tunisia since July 2011. In its activities, DCAF is guided by the principles of neutrality, impartiality, inclusive participation and local ownership.
