Abstract and Keywords
The rise of police and of policing in international affairs has been a quiet revolution. Similarly, the WPS agenda struggles to gain the meaningful attention and buy-in required to compel change. Thus the fledgling status of these two fairly recent developments combined to ensure that the substantial promise of policing in advancing the WPS agenda and that of the WPS agenda for furthering the call for increased investment in international policing have not yet been realized. This chapter provides an overview of developments in the WPS and policing fields. In doing so, it examines the contributions of each agenda with respect to issues of appropriation and operationalization. Moreover, this chapter explores how the nascent promise of the WPS and policing nexus might be brought to the fore in international and domestic affairs, arguing that the implementation of WPS and policing objectives warrant focused attention and commitment from the international community.
