This book has shown that for developments in the history of international policing, a Weberian theory of bureaucratization can account for the development of international police cooperation on the basis of a two-fold model of bureaucratic autonomy. First, police institutions must have gained a sufficient level of independence from their respective political centres to create a structural condition that allows for international cooperation beyond politically related or aligned states. Secondly, the efforts of international police cooperation must additionally rely on systems of knowledge related to the fight against international crime as the motivational basis for cooperation. In this concluding chapter, some relevant implications of these issues are discussed.

Keywords:   international policing, bureaucratization, bureaucratic autonomy, police institutions, international police cooperation, cooperation
