e security governance of South Africa has faced immense challenges amid post-apartheid
constitutional and political transformations. In many cases, policing and governmental
organizations have failed to provide security and other services to the poorest inhabitants.
Security Governance, Policing, and Local Capacity explores an experiment that took place
in Zwelethemba—located in South Africas Western Cape Province—to establish legitimate and
effective non state security governance within poor urban settlements.
ere has been, and continues to be, much reticence to endorsing private forms of security
governance that operate outside of state institutions within local communities. ose initiatives
have often led to situations where force is used illegally and punishment is dispensed arbitrarily
and brutally. is book explores the extent to which this model of mobilizing local knowledge
and capacity was able to effectively achieve justice, democracy, accountability, and development
in this region.
Whenever possible, the book includes raw data and a thorough analysis of existing information
on security governance. Examining this case and its outcome, the authors provide a theoretical
analysis of the model used and present a series of modified design principles for future applications
in local security governance. e book concludes that poor communities are a significant
source of untapped resources that can, under certain conditions, be mobilized to significantly
enhance safety. is volume is an important examination of experimental models and a
presentation of new groundbreaking theory on engaging the local community in solving security
governance problems.
