Privileging Southern Voices on Gender and Police Reform
The North-South Institute (NSI), working with partners in South Sudan and Liberia, researched how some countries are integrating a gender perspective into their police reform programs. The research also looked at how women in those countries experience police reform differently from men, and what could be done to make police reform more responsive to women’s different needs. In its conferences and reports, NSI explored the experiences of women in the community as well as women police officers, to better understand these processes on both sides of the “thin blue line.”
