Reimagining Police and Public Safety – ASG, Pufendorf IAS

Project: Network

Project Details


Advanced study Group (ASG) at the Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies

Layman's description

In this Advanced Study Group, we are interested in how ideals like public order, safety and security have come to such an inseparable linkage with police and police work– in legal, political and cultural imagination. Our aim is to unpack, and understand police, its social meaning and significance, and question taken for granted assumptions regarding safety, security and public order as integral and inseparable from police in its contemporary modern organization.
