Trust and Legitimacy in Criminal Justice

The book explores police legitimacy and crime control, with a focus on the European region. Using comparative case studies, the contributions to this timely volume examine the effects of a transition to democracy on policing, public attitudes towards police legitimacy, and the ways in which perceptions of police legitimacy relate to compliance with the law.Following these case studies, the authors provide recommendations for improving police legitimacy and controlling crime, in these particular sociopolitical environments, where the police are often associated with previous military or paramilitary roles. The techniques used by these researchers may be applied to studies for policing in other regions, with potential applications within Europe and beyond. Chapters present topical issues of crime, crime control and human emotions regarding crime, criminals, law enforcement and punishment in contemporary societies.This book will be of interest to researchers in criminology and criminal justice, as well as political science and public policy.This book is highly recommended for anyone interested in procedural justice and legitimacy, encounters between citizens and the state, the effectiveness of governmental institutions, and democratic development. It stands alone in its broad, cross-national contributions to understanding these issues.- Wesley G. Skogan, PhD, Professor of Political Science, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL, USA

Napoleon's Hundred Days and the Politics of Leg...
92,55 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines the politics of legitimacy as they played out across Europe in response to Napoleon's dramatic return to power in France after his exile to Elba in 1814. Napoleon had to re-establish his claim to power with initially minimal military resources. Moreover, as the rest of Europe united against him, he had to marshal popular support for his new regime, while simultaneously demanding men and money to back what became an increasingly inevitable military campaign. The initial return - known as 'the flight of the eagle' - gradually turned into a dogged attempt to bolster support using a range of mechanisms, including constitutional amendments, elections, and public ceremonies. At the same time, his opponents had to marshal their resources to challenge his return, relying on populations already war-weary and resentful of the costs they had had to bear. The contributors to this volume explore how, for both sides, cultural politics became central in supporting or challenging the legitimacy of these political orders in the path to Waterloo.

Egyptians' Translating Democracy: A Model in th...
37,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book tackles the question of Egyptians' (still in the making) translational model of democratic development and transition. This model challenges the notion of 'Arab exceptionalism' with its normative narratives of legitimacy and changing compatibility claims. The latter are structured in tune with America's conception of democracy, which according to Ido Oren "are products, more than determinants of America's... foreign political relations" (Oren 147). More specifically, this model exposes the bias and theoretical lacuna in constitutional and political science theories, whose usage of ahistorical and decontextualized paradigm of civil-military relations demonizes the role of military in democratic transition and development, and disregards the specific history of Egyptian military and its role in state-building and preservation.

76,97 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines the UK approach to investigating international crimes and serious human rights violations. In 2010, the United Nations Secretary General referred to the emerging system of international justice, including the creation of the International Criminal Court, as the 'Age of Accountability.' However, the UK has sometimes struggled to comply with its international law obligations. Using examples from the post-World War II period to 2018, interviews with leading UK military lawyers and newly disclosed official documents, this work explains the legal duties, how the UK military and civilian justice systems investigate alleged military misconduct and highlights the challenges involved. It provides suggestions on strengthening domestic law and policy and its importance for the UK's legitimacy as an exporter of rule of law expertise. This text is essential reading for practitioners, academics, government officials and students of international, criminal, humanitarian or human rights law.

Militainment
40,10 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Militainment is a portmanteau of "Military" and "entertainment". It is defined as either entertainment featuring and celebrating the military, or controlled by the military. The U.S. military in particular excels in the authorship of militainment, although the Russian military also has plans to produce their own TV channel. Typical examples consist of a broad array of media, from television and movies, to reality shows and video games. It also involves the manufacture of pop culture icons with military like characteristics that people, typically young men, can look up to. Militainment serves a number of purposes, from recruiting to public relations and history of events depicted in news and history books. The military, through public affairs departments, maintains close ties to the entertainment industry as a way of enlisting their help in creating and distributing these forms of media and adding high production value and legitimacy

Rethinking the Military and Democratization
49,00 € *

Since a 1994 military coup brought to power the incumbent regime of President Yaya Jammeh, the Gambia's foreign policy and democratization process greatly contributed towards shifting the dynamics of politics and security of the sub-region. Following a sanctioned developmental aid and three parliamentary and presidential elections, foreign policy in the Gambian foreign policy along the global political spectrum ushered the emergence of several new actors in region. Using contemporary political theory,this book carefully examined the military coup in The Gambia, the democratization process and the security implications of sanctioning aid for the minuscule West African nation. The book distinctively argued that sanctioning aid on resource poor small states largely determines foreign policy behavior, for reasons of survival, security and legitimacy. In the case of minuscule resource poor Gambia, the book concluded that suspending aid in the aftermath of the July 22nd, 1994 military Coup was not at all necessary,because the people needed that aid.The book outlined policy measures for the Gambia and developmental partners to progressively deal with her contradictions and challenges
