Shearing, C. (Clifford) ; Cartwright, J. (John) (2010)
This seminar is part of a digital course Trends in the Governance of Security , introduced by Clifford Shearing, which focuses on civic or popular policing. John Cartwright, focuses on a particular case of civic policing called the Zwelethemba model where local communities are involved in peacekeeping in the area of Zwelethemba, near Cape Town. This model of policing is a method of governing security at the local level which is informed by, and mobilizes, local capacity and knowledge. Learning across Borders (LABS) is an initiative to foster sustainable teaching and research in Africa is the outreach arm of the Centre of Criminology at the University of Cape Town. Trends in the Governance of Security is the first of a series of digital courses which aim is to support and enhance the the quality of teaching on security and justice within African tertiary learning institutions. The aim is to develop and share digital materials that will bring key scholars in Africa and the world directly into African classrooms.
