Crime, Public Order and Human Rights

Ratings: (0)|Views: 48|Likes:
What problems arise for civil society when surges in criminality occur, or when crime is perceived to intensify in periods of change? What responses and strategies can be identified?
This study examines the problems that arise for human rights workers when there is public demand for severe law and order policies to curb crime, and asks what would make their work more legitimate and effective.
Analysing different experiences and offering practical conclusions, the report outlines a human rights approach to the problem of crime that goes beyond traditional concern with police abuse.
