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. In its activities, DCAF is guided by the principles of neutrality, impartiality, inclusive participation and local ownership.
