Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of names, terms and concepts on policing marital violence that occur in the book titled Policing marital violence in Singapore . The book explores the police response to marital violence in Singapore. As with any research, this investigation into police response is located in a particular culture and historical context. It owes its origins to the reframing of questions about the problem of intimate violence and its ramifications for the criminal justice system, particularly with issues of policing, safety and protection of victims from such violence. The book examines the history of changes at the policy and executive levels relating to the policing of marital violence in the Singapore context. It offers an alternative and original conceptual approach to understanding rank-and-file policing based on the work of Pierre Bourdieu.

Keywords: criminal justice system; marital violence; Pierre Bourdieu; Singapore
