1 January, 2011


This report aims to provide a general support and awareness raising of core notions related to the democratic police system in a federal structure.

The report presents the core concepts that are necessary to understand what policing means in federal contexts, what it entails in terms of legal and organizational features. Such a clarification is essential so that authorities can have a clear vision of what the implementation of various federal scenarios will entail for their country.
