The manual translates ‘high’ principles into specific practical exercises that facilitate police work, and supports police officers in internalising the concepts that drive human rights-based policing – helping to ensure that they are equipped to make the right choices in their daily work. The manual focuses on crucial police-related issues, such as diversity and non-discrimination, the absolute prohibition of torture, and also the human rights of police officers. Tried and tested with different police academies in the EU, the manual is intended as a practical tool for implementing fundamental rights-based policing in the EU.
