South East Europe

In South-East Europe, we conduct research in Serbia, Kosovo and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

This work package looks in particular at police reform in the three cases, taking into account the central part the rule of law plays in democratization in post-conflict societies.

Our research objectives include the evaluation of existing material on community-oriented policing by international organizations and NGOs, and the drafting of context and region specific handbooks of community-oriented policing.

Prof. Thomas Feltes of Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany, leads this work package. The other work package team members are:

  • Prof. Janina Czapska, Jagiellonian University, Poland
  • Katarzyna Struzińska, Jagiellonian University, Poland
  • Robin Hofmann, Ruhr University Bochum, Germany
