The Security Sector Legislation of Ukraine


J. Colston, P. Fluri and S. Piroshkov



This comprehensive collection of Ukrainian legislation on the SecuritySector will serve two purposes: it will give Ukrainian and Western experts an overview in Ukrainian, Russian and English of what legal documents already exist in Ukraine; and it will serve as a tool for identifying possibilities for adaptations to the law. In terms of the latter, Ukrainian experts and members of the DCAF Legal-Political Assistance Group will be invited to annotate and comment on the laws in the light of good practices elsewhere.
