UACES Collaborative research Network (CRN):
Policing (broadly defined) and European Studies.
Call for Papers
This UACES funded collaborative research network takes a wide definition of “policing”, taking an interdisciplinary approach to the development of the cross border policing provisions which are increasingly being legislated for by the EU. This network plans to hold its first mini-conference on the 26th February 2010 at the University of Abertay Dundee.
We invite research papers (maximum of 6,000 words) from doctoral and early career researchers, as well as more established academics, practitioners and policy makers, from across a range of disciplines such as police and security studies, law, criminology and sociology, political science, International Relations, European studies, psychology, and management and organisational change.
Proposals for papers are invited covering this broad theme, in particular, but in no means confined to the following areas;
• Policing at the frontier,
• Policing and EU politics and policy,
• Policing financial crime in the EU,
• Practical issues in cross border policing,
• EU policing and organisational change,
• Policing broadly defined, in the EU context
Please send an abstract of 150 – 200 words to the organisers by the 30th September 09. You will be notified if your application is successful by Friday the 16th October 09, with registration for the mini - conference being opened after that date.
NB: Limited funding will be available to assist with expenses of PhD students / early career academics.
Please contact the mini-conference organisers if you require further information as to this mini-conference, or the research network generally.
