Variation in Institutional Oversight of Police Misconduct

Project description

How do states address police misconduct?

No democracy is immune from the challenges of police violence and abuse. The question is how states address police misconduct and whether oversight institutions actually work. Currently, there is no systemic cross-national comparative research on states exercising coercive force. The ERC-funded VINO project will develop a theoretical framework that contains a wide array of facets of institutional design. It asks how these institutional facets impact on citizen perceptions of police legitimacy and willingness to file complaints. The project will compare the situation in all OECD democracies using a multi-method approach. It will conduct the first cross-national statistical analysis. It complements this analysis with a series of survey experiments.
