The economic crisis and financial constraints have deep and far reaching consequences for living standards and cohesion of societies and by that also affected policing in many states. Additional challenges for the police services have come up with the new media and their wide range of implications on everyday policing, criminality and major events. Use of powers, police accountability and legitimacy being sensitive indicators for quality of democracies and governance in general these questions under the new conditions have to be analysed even more carefully. With this focus the conference tries to collect and present current results of police theory and research and assess the impact on policing strategies.
The three-day conference is open to police researchers, scientists, practitioners and educators. The conference will offer many opportunities for networking and exchanges of information, as well as giving participants the chance to showcase their own projects in an informal setting. Speakers include police science and research experts from across Europe, as well as representatives of European Union agencies and non governmental organisations.
