Policing the Crisis–Policing in Crisis, Vol. 38:1-2, 2011


SKU: 38:1-2 Categories: ,


Kendra Briken and Volker Eick, eds.

This issue of Social Justice discusses recent policing and security strategies, civil rights, and crime policy within the framework of the current financial and economic crisis. Contributors focus on various aspects of urban policing in crisis, such as recent developments in the “governance” of urban spaces. Some articles analyze neoliberal ideologies, programs, and projects that restrict the right to the city from “undesirables.” Others concentrate on the “doing of policing” to better understand the inclusionary and exclusionary effects within newly arising policing regimes and the institutional players involved.
