Expert advises South Korea on police reform

A University of Wolverhampton expert has become an official advisor to the South Korean parliament on issues of police reform.

Professor in Criminology Graham Brooks’ research areas include techniques of policing and preventing corruption in an international context.

He has shared his expertise with the police and probation services in the Republic of Korea before, and was invited to present a paper in parliament on police reform.

Professor Brooks, from the Faculty of Social Sciences, said: “It was an honour to be asked to present a paper in the South Korean Parliament on matters of such importance.

“The plan is to use this paper as a discussion point in future parliamentary debates on police reform.”

His paper, co-authored with colleague Dr John Mcdaniel, is titled ‘democratisation of the police in the Republic of Korea: decentralisation, accountability and legitimacy’.
