Urban (In) Security: Policing the Neoliberal Crisis

Volker Eick (Editor), Kendra Briken (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

Abstract

The neoliberalization of policing and the policing of neoliberalization are worldwide phenomena. While the first trend effects the organization of policing, the second trend brings about new policing strategies executed by state police, commercial security contractors and by nonprofit police forces. This volume for the first time brings together empirical studies comparing policing strategies from Australia, Britain, France, Germany, India, Lithuania, Sweden and the United States.
