Resumé

Why do people give money to the police? Because they have to! Or face the violent consequences! This book addresses policing torture and corruption as interlinked practices. Rather than separating corruption and torture, the collection suggests exploring their linkages in the everyday encounter between authority (state and non-state/formal and informal) and individuals through the central concept of violent exchange. This concept contributes to contextual and situated understandings of the everyday practices of rule of law, exercise of authority and all the small, often invisible ways people attempt to navigate to stay safe and maybe even express claims of belonging and rights. As such this book will provide a welcome contribution to policing and corruption studies as well as NGOs, human rights organizations and policy makers within the fields of state violence and corruption.
