Description:

The Politics of Police Reform explores the conditions in which police forces are able to succeed in their transformation and when they are likely to fail. The book compares reform efforts in Ukraine, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and Tajikistan, finding that bottom-up public mobilization is likely to emerge in the aftermath of transformative violence–incidents in which the usual patterns of policing are interrupted with unprecedented brutality against vulnerable individuals.
