Human Rights and Policing: Standards for Good Behaviour and a Strategy for Change

Coperta unu
Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 20 mai 1998 - 295 pagini
This is a unique book in that it distils the knowledge, ideas and experience of three police professionals in the cause of a human rights-based approach to policing. The book is written for an audience of police officials, human rights workers with an interest in human rights and policing, and resource persons and teachers responsible for the education of police officials. It provides a concise account and analysis of international human rights standards and best practice appertaining to key areas of policing, and it sets out a clear strategy to bring about change, organisational and thence behavioural, within police organisations. To focus on human rights and best practice in policing is not only important as an end in itself, it is also important as a means of securing effective policing for the support of the community. Effective policing in a democracy is dependent upon police respecting the rule of law and human rights.
