Policing Post-Conflict Cities

Policing Post_conflict

How and why does order emerge after conflict? What does it mean in the context of the twenty-first century postcolonial city? From Kabul to Kigali and Kinshasa, in Baghdad and Basra, abandoned by the state, and with security increasingly ghettoised, people make their own rules and survival becomes a matter of manipulation and hustling.

In this book Alice Hills discusses the interface between order and security. Though the focus from analysts and donors is generally on security, Hills argues that the concept of order is much more meaningful for peoples' lives. Focusing on the police as both providers of order and a measure of its success, the book shows that order depends more on what has gone before than on reconstruction efforts and that tension is inevitable in donors' attempts to reform brutal local policing.

Policing Post-Conflict Cities provides a powerful critique of the failure of liberal orthodoxy to understand the meaning of order.
