Part 5 of the Cross-Cutting Issues' sector of the Criminal Justice Assessment Toolkit, produced by the United Nation Office on Drugs and Crime and the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT) to support joint programming at the country level.
The Guidebook is designed to assist OSCE staff dealing with police and law enforcement issues, police practitioners and policy-makers working to develop and strengthen democratic policing, to serve as a reference to internationally adopted standards. This is the Volume 1 in the SPMU Publication Series.
The toolkit is set of tools designed to enable interested parties to conduct comprehensive assessments of criminal justice systems and identify areas of technical assistance. It was developed by the UNODC in close co-operation with the OSCE/SPMU.
