In societies suffering from acute political and social cleavage, policing agencies are invariably at the heart of the conflict resolution processes. In Northern Ireland, there have been calls for the RUC to be disbanded as well as for it to be retained unchanged. After considering various options and models especially from Spain, South Africa and the Netherlands this book charts a path for reform that takes account of Northern Ireland's political realities and will help build trust and inclusions.
