SFB 700 - Research Project C3 - Police-Building and Transnational Security Fields in Latin America
Research Project C3 assesses the (local/international) political context factors that contribute to the efficiency and legitimacy of security governance transfers. Additionally, the project analyses the impact of the historical legacy of such transfers on contemporary interventions. These questions will be investigated through an analysis of the shifting dynamics and historical legacies of two configurations of transnational security fields, centered on international police building, in Guatemala (1954-2010). Through this focus, research project C3 addresses core questions of the SFB 700: the relevance of legitimacy in interventions and the long-term consequences of international police building for (local) statehood and the international system.
