New Publication Available - The Role of Civilian Police in Peacekeeping
We are pleased to announce the publication of Dr. Garth den Heyer's book, based on a research project for the United States Institute of Peace. This research represents an important step in understanding how police should be integrated into peacekeeping missions. Operational tools and model policies were developed after analyzing 23 United Nations and European Union peacekeeping missions.
The findings from this study may assist police planners, practitioners, and researchers who are part of a widening audience with an interest in the role of police in post-conflict or underdeveloped nations. The study fills a vacuum in previous research in how peacekeeping missions were planned, managed, and evaluated from the police perspective.
