Abstract The genesis of this special issue of the Australian Journal of Human Rights was an international conference on policing and human rights held in Canberra in 2013. The theme of the three-day conference, hosted by the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security (CEPS), was hardly original. Fifty years earlier, at the same hotel venue (the Rex Hotel, Canberra), the Commonwealth of Australia hosted the United Nations Seminar on the Role of Police in the Protection of Human Rights (1963). That seminar, like the 2013 conference and this special issue, provided a forum to reflect upon the vital role that policing plays in upholding human rights. This issue provides a showcase of the contemporary challenges, locally and globally, in policing and human rights. It also demonstrates how the discourses have changed in 50 years: the voices of the oppressed are heard more clearly, and the range of disciplines engaged in this debate has expanded from law to include psychology, ethics, criminology and sociology.
