International Governance of War-Torn Territories

Richard Caplan (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Public order and internal security are the sine qua non of civil rule and, by extension, of the international administration of a territory. Examines international engagement in relation to the triad of responsibilities—policing, the administration of justice, and the establishment of penal systems—that are most critical for the maintenance of law and order in a war-torn territory. Some of the issues addressed include supervisory versus executive policing, the role of military forces in policing, extra-judicial detention, war criminals, and reconciliation processes.

Keywords:   detention, judicial and penal institutions, policing, reconciliation, war criminals
