Full description of the book "Policing and Human Rights : The Meaning of Violence and Justice in the Everyday Policing of Johannesburg":Policing and Human Rights analyses the implementation of human rights standards, tracing them from the nodal points of their production in Geneva, through the board rooms of national police management and training facilities, to the streets of downtown Johannesburg. This book deals with how the unprecedented influence of human rights, combined with the inability by police officers to 'live up' to international standards, has created a range of policing and human rights vernaculars - hybrid discourses that have appropriated, transmogrified and undercut human rights. Understood as an attempt by police officers, as much as by the police as a whole, to recover PDF a position from which to act and to judge, these vernaculars reveal the compromised ways in which human rights are - and are not - implemented. Tracing how, in South Africa, human rights have given rise to new forms of popular justice, informal 'private' policing and provisional security arrangements, Policing and Human Rights delivers an important analysis of how the dissemination and implementation of human rights intersects with the post-colonial and post-transformation circumstances that characterise many countries in the South.
