Show Summary Details

Preview

Drawing on the study of ‘global transformations’, this article explores the thesis that all aspects of policing are gradually transforming as the world is becoming more economically, politically, technologically and socially interconnected. Exploring the dimensions of transnational policing based on a socio-spatial typology, the globalization thesis is delineated in relation to policing in the local, national, regional, international and global spheres. Raising some practical, political and ethical issues emerging from the field, the article concludes with suggestions for research on various aspects of transnational policing.
