Much of the literature on police corruption and police reforms is dominated by case studies of societies classified as developed. However, under the influence of globalization, developing societies have become a focal point of scholarly interest and examination. Police Corruption and Police Reforms in Developing Societies provides critical analyses of the extent and nature of police corruption and misconduct in developing societies. It also examines police reform measures that have been implemented or are still necessary to control and mitigate the effects of police corruption in developing societies.
This book offers a comprehensive and authoritative account of the causes and consequences of police corruption. It also relates lessons learned from police reform efforts that have been made in a wide cross section of developing societies spanning several continents.
The book is divided into five sections covering:Theoretical and analytical perspectives on police corruption and police reforms, including the role of the rule of law and training as a reform toolCase studies on African societiesCase studies on societies in Asia and the PacificCase studies on societies in Latin America and the CaribbeanA concluding chapter containing thorough summaries of all other chapters for quick scanning and reference
Police Corruption and Police Reforms in Developing Societies is a significant contribution to shifting attention from the dominance of developed societies in the literature on police corruption and police reforms. It also bridges the gap between research and practice, with an editor and contributors who bring a wealth of practical experience to their analyses. Their combined efforts in this book provide new insights on the problem of police corruption in developing societies as well as approaches and challenges to police reforms.
