This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book uses the examples of Croatia and Serbia-Montenegro to examine the theory and practice of security sector reform in transforming societies, and its wider relationship with normative international policy. The experiences of these two states demonstrate both the utility and relevance of the security sector reform concept as well as some of the major problems and limitations inherent in its utilisation. The security sector reform experiences of Croatia and Serbia-Montenegro between 2000 and 2006 were in many respects quite different, and demonstrate the importance of recognising national and historic specificities in comparative analysis. At the political level, Croatia made substantial progress in democratising its civil-security sector relations. Croatia and Serbia-Montenegro also shared a number of commonalities in their experiences of security sector reform at the organisational level.
