Bayerl S.P., Bisogni F., Chirică S., Costanzo P., Fernández C., et al. (2021) "Factors influencing cross-border knowledge sharing by police organisations: an integration of ten European case studies"

The globalisation of crime means there is an increasingly vital need for effective sharing of knowledge by police organisations across international borders. However, identifying the complexities and challenges of this aspect of international collaboration has been relatively neglected in previous research. The research reported in this paper therefore set out to identify the major barriers and facilitators of international knowledge sharing. Research teams in ten European countries produced ten case studies of knowledge sharing across borders, either involving direct cooperation between police forces in different countries or through international agencies such as CEPOL or INTERPOL
