The DCAF Border Security Programme contributes to the raising of efficiency of border management authorities in Southeast Europe and fosters mutual cooperation to successfully mitigate modern and occurring security threats to regional and European border integrity. It aims to enhance the security of citizens and support the free movement of people, goods and ideas.
Via building regional capacities, transferring European standards, good practices, and responding the actual needs in the area of regional border management, the Programme contributes to a full implementation of the Integrated Border Management concept in the Southeast European region.
In early 2012, the DCAF Border Security Programme has been transferred from Geneva to DCAF Ljubljana, the permanent office of DCAF in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Along with structural and organisational changes, the Programme has been reshaped to make it even more efficient and result oriented.
