Law Enforcement Accountability and The Carter Center: What, Where, and Why?

According to the 1979 United Nations Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials, “the nature of the functions of law enforcement in the defense of public order and the manner in which those functions [are] exercised [have] a direct impact on the quality of life of individuals as well as society as a whole.”

Corruption, excessive force, profiling, deliberate evidence tampering, and discrimination can all erode public trust in law enforcement and, by extension, peace and security. The Carter Center has been supporting national police forces in Costa Rica and Liberia to better reflect and serve their constituencies through improved transparency, accountability, and gender equality since 2017 and is looking to expand this work internationally, as well as domestically in Metro Atlanta.

During this brownbag speaker series event, you will hear from Carter Center project leads based in core countries and experts in policing, communities, and mental health about why this work is important, where and what work is being done in this space, and opportunities for expansion.

The Carter Center is guided by the principles of our Founders, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. Founded, in partnership with Emory University, on a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering, the Center seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health.
