Policing the Arab Seasons

UK mandate in UK 07/04/2014 - 09/04/2014

The workshop is designed to address how best to deal with the deteriorating security situation in the Middle East and North Africa: How can we accurately describe the situation which now exists, a time characterised by some as the 'Arab Winter'?  What is required to restore physical security, the rule of law and economic prosperity? What is the role of national and local governments, and police and criminal justice institutions in a situation characterized by ungoverned spaces, clashes within and between secular and religious forces, legal pluralism, and the presence of armed jihadis, militias, and tribal forces?
