Demonstrating how a theory of global policing is central to understanding global governance, the text explores:
- the ′new security agenda′ focused on serious organised crime and terrorism and how this is transforming policing
- the creation of global organisations such as Interpol, regional entities such as Europol, and national policing agencies with a transnational reach
- the subculture of the ′global cops′, blurring boundaries between police, private security, military and secret intelligence agencies
- the reality of transnational policing on the ground, its effectiveness, legitimacy, accountability and future development.
Written by two leading international experts who bring cutting-edge theoretical debates to life with case studies and examples, Global Policing will prove captivating reading for students and scholars in criminology, criminal justice, international relations, law and sociology.
