This rapid review synthesises data from academic, policy and NGO sources on the impact of international policing interventions on marginalised groups in fragile and conflict-affected states. Interventions will be defined broadly as any circumstance where international actors have invested time or resources on policing. Policing includes the police, prisons and security actors carrying out the duties of the police. Marginalised groups include ethnic minorities, women and girls, people with physical and mental disabilities, and Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI) people.
