Event Description: 

This conference will commemorate the 1963 United Nations Seminar on the Role of Police in the Protection of Human Rights. It will examine issues from the 1963 seminar, address the evolution of human rights since 1963, and also consider new topics of concern that did not confront law enforcement in 1963. These issues include discrimination (e.g. gender, race, disability); indigenous concerns; the role of technology and forensic science; the internationalisation of policing; balancing human rights and security; interviewing; the role of modern policing; corruption and ethics; and the differing structures of policing.
