The principal aim of this study is to examine law enforcement and human rights in a
post war African society: Sierra Leone. The major question addressed in the course of this research is: should respect for
human rights be relevant to law enforcement and should law enforcement officials in
post conflict societies (such as Sierra Leone) be bound by national and international
standards in domestic law enforcement in their countries? Also explores the use of dissuasive measures such as prosecution to minimise the culture of impunity by law enforcement officials especially during conflict and post conflict periods
