Chapter Summary

The purpose of this paper is to describe a framework for human rights programmes for police that can be adapted and applied to programmes offered by international bodies or resource persons, and national authorities. One of the purposes of human rights programmes for police referred to at the beginning of this paper is to provide a basis for continuing efforts within police agencies to deliver effective, lawful and humane policing. The framework proposed in this paper, which has formed the basis of programmes for police and other security officials delivered by the Raoul Wallenberg Institute, does not purport to be comprehensive in its coverage of human rights topics or themes. It is essential that the human rights principles are followed in human rights education programmes for police. The education of police, their intellectual, moral and social instruction, can be met through well-informed and vigorous debate and discussion.
