Police practice urgently requires to be changed to meet the needs of a modern multicultural society, and to open up to the perspective of diversity. For the first time in this reader such renowned experts in the field of intercultural competence as Milton Bennett (USA), Glynn Davis (Canada), Frank Bovenkerk (Netherlands) and Steve Hennessy (USA) are brought together with a German team at the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne working on a model project for the German police. Among the concerns addressed here are: What has been learned from experiences with different training programs for police personnel so far? How does intercultural training link together with strategies of organizational development? How have different traditions affected intercultural approaches in countries such as Canada, the USA, the Netherlands and Germany?

This book provides an overview about the state of key issues in intercultural police research, and challenges much of the accepted thinking on this controversial topic.
