Book Talk: The Politics of Police Reform

The police in the post-Soviet space remain one of the least reformed institutions, despite broader democratic transformations. Erica Marat will use her new book to examine the conditions under which a meaningful transformation of the police is likely to succeed, using case studies from Ukraine, Georgia and Kyrgyzstan. The panel will discuss policing as a reflection of a complex society bound together by a web of casual interactions and political structures.
