Policing Africa: Internal Security and the Limits of Liberalization

By Alice Hills | Go to book overview

About the Book

The use and abuse of political power in Africa has been closely related to the role and function of the police. Alice Hills explores the impact of the cautious moves toward liberalization across the continent both on policing systems and on the relationship between those systems and national development.

Hills engages contemporary debates on security sector reform, governance, law and justice, and civil society to examine the environment within which Africa's police forces operate. She also addresses the special problems confronting reconstructed states: the prevalence of low-intensity conflicts, reintegration programs, UN and NGO involvement, the nature of policing, and differing concepts of professionalism and liberalization.

A series of case studies—from Congo (Zaire), Eritrea, Ethiopia, Namibia, Somalia, and Uganda—inform this original book, which offers an important prism through which to view state-society relations in Africa.

Alice Hills is senior lecturer in defense studies at the Joint Services Command and Staff College.
