Policing in Emerging Democracies: Workshop Papers and HighlightsOctober 1997
For some time, the United States has offered training and technical assistance to police organizations in other countries. Over the past several years, there has been an unprecedented opportunity to do so within the context of state reform in countries making the transition to democracy. As a result, the agencies of the U.S. Government that administer this assistance have expanded their training activities and changed the focus of the assistance provided. The Department of State and the Department of Justice have built a strong and evolving partnership in this arena to promote the development of effective and accountable police services in countries where the difficult transition to democratic forms of government is taking place. Policing in Emerging Democracies: Workshop Papers and Highlights presents the commissioned papers from leading academics who have reflected on policing in emerging democracies.
