New Directions in the Study of Global Police Power

The study of police power has taken on a new urgency in many societies around the world. Social theorists, historians, anthropologists, sociologists, activists, and everyday people are increasingly scrutinizing the nature and interrogating the origins of the police institutions and practices that structure our lives in various ways. What are the common and distinct features of police power across the global landscape and in different eras?

Gathering together a diverse group of scholars from various disciplines, “New Directions in the Study of Global Police Power”—a workshop sponsored by the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs and convened by Associate Professor of History Max Ward and Visiting Assistant Professor of Global Studies Amit Prakash—is a one-day event that will address these important questions and showcase cutting edge research on the topic of policing. 

Participants: Marieke Bloembergen (KITLV), Radha Kumar (Syracuse), Jeffrey Martin (Illinois Urbana-Champaign), Donna Murch (Rutgers), Umemori Naoyuki (Waseda), Mark Neocleous (Brunel), Amit Prakash (Middlebury), Stuart Schrader (Johns Hopkins), Alex Vitale (Brooklyn College), Max Ward (Middlebury).
