Description - From Congo to Kosovo by Annika S. Hansen

The role of civilian police in peace operations has expanded greatly since the early 1990s and has culminated in international policemen assuming responsibility for law and order in Kosovo and East Timor. Civilian police still struggle with shortfalls in quality and quantity, with inadequate planning and deployment delays. More importantly, their operational effectiveness remains dependent on political support from their domestic authorities, the UN and the local political leadership in the conflict area. Despite these challenges, as this book maps out, civilian police play a critical role in reforming local police forces and at times enforcing the law themselves.
