Description/Abstract

This paper explores the struggles for labour and social rights on the part of police officers in democratising countries. The paper suggests that the rights of police officers and labour–management relations are important issues to be acknowledged if we are serious about deepening the democratic practices of police, particularly in democratising countries. These issues should be deliberated among policing scholars and police managers as well as important international regulatory organisations such as the ILO whose current regulatory frameworks inadvertently restrict police worker rights.
