The period since 2000 has presented unprecedented opportunities for democratization and international rehabilitation for Croatia and Serbia-Montenegro. In both countries the role of defence reform in these processes has been crucial. The new governments of each have faced three primary challenges in this area: establishing and consolidating democratic control over their formerly politicized armed forces; reforming bloated conflict-era force structures while rationalizing defence budgets; and managing an emergent relationship with NATO and the West. This book examines these processes. It asks how far defence reform challenges in these countries today can be equated to the experiences of the post-communist region more widely or whether the influences of conflict and nationalist authoritarianism make Croatia and Serbia-Montenegro unique cases. In particular it explores the manner and ways in which the international community has tried to encourage defence reform in both states and assesses the effectiveness of strategies including defence assistance and political conditionality.
