Beyond Control: A Mutual Respect Approach to Protest Crowd-Police Relations by Shirley Pare
English | Apr. 1, 2010 | ISBN: 1849660042 | 272 Pages | PDF | 1 MB
How can large protest crowds be better and more respectfully managed by police?
This topical book applies the principles of community-based conflict resolution to the policing of large crowds, suggesting a completely new approach that moves away from the discourse of rabble-rousing mobs towards negotiated management, and a paradigm of mutual respect for protesters as principled dissenters and for police as non-repressive agents of public order. Both are needed, the authors argue, in order for democracy to flourish. The book opens with a foreword from Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
