This wide-ranging collection offers fresh insights into policing's role in development and politics on the African continent. It has three primary objectives: First, it critically examines and illustrates the centrality of policing in transition societies in Africa. Secondly, it outlines and assesses the emergence and impact of the diversity of state and non-state policing agencies. Finally, it engages with the nature, scope, and diversity of international interventions for police capacity-building in countries emerging from war as part of security sector reform....
