The book is based on the assumption that, while the military sector's activities require some confidentiality, it should be subject to the same standard procedures and rules followed by other state sectors. Thus, the framework for the country studies is provided by a model for good practice in budgeting for the military sector that focuses on principles of public expenditure management and defence planning.
The individual studies are tied together by a synthesis chapter, which provides a comparative analysis of the studies, identifies the level and pattern of adherence of the eight countries to the model for good practices in military budgeting and provides explanations for the different degrees of adherence displayed by the countries. Based on these explanations, the book makes concrete recommendations to the governments of African countries on how to improve their military budgetary processes and to the international community on how to support their efforts.
