Une histoire européenne des polices (ANR projet SYSPOE – Systèmes policiers européens)

Abstract : The field of history of police has experienced a vigorous growth for 15 years in France. During this phase, the project of a collective European investigation was conceived to prevent the mere accumulation of monographs, develop comparisons and remove artificial barriers to a history composed from a national stance, in France and abroad. SYSPOE studies the construction and the recompositions of 18th and 19th century European police systems, defined as more or less organized articulations of forces between the actors contributing to policing or preserving public order. It aims to analyse how very different forms of police organizations were established in similar socio-political conditions, in order to bring a new understanding of European societies in the 18th and 19th century by the study of social regulation. SYSPOE aspires to design conceptual tools for writing a truly European history of police and to analyse the mutations of contemporary police systems, to contribute to the public debate on these issues.
