Professor Peter Squires Asymmetric Policing at a Distance: Frontiers, law and disorder in the weaponised South.
The second event in the seminar series: Police, race, punishment: New directions in Criminology.
A preliminary look at two related aspects of the imperial legacy in the global south: both the weaponisation of frontiers and the production of conflict and the imposition of ‘asymmetric’ policing systems upon these same regions along with the reproduction of inequality and disorder. Of course, whether all policing systems are asymmetric and ‘force reliant’ anyway, may be an implicit question, especially with the shift to a 'high policing' agenda globally and the related paramilitarisation of policing practices. Learning Southern lessons, perhaps?
