Description

The police represent the clearest and most familiar aspect of the modern nation state to those who reside in the relevant territorial jurisdiction. They are also the state actor most likely to engage in violence. Why does police violence exist and what (if anything) can be done to reduce it? This class will explore these questions through a rigorous investigation of history, data and theory. The course will be driven by detailed reading and discussion as well as original research into what might work in reducing police violence.
