About Coercive Power

The domain of coercive power centres on military and policing elites, members of private security agencies, and those who control and/or deploy the means of coercion within and outside the state apparatus. Here, we explore the changing ways in which coercive elites assert their power and the impact that has on political regimes in the region.
