The Colours of the Chameleon

Exploratory Research into the Involvement of Police Officers in Honour-Related Conflicts

By Janine Janssen

This book deals with the dilemmas caused by the various simultaneous roles one has in life. For instance, one can be a family member, an employee, a friend, and a member of a sports club all at the same time. This can generate tension because expectations of behavior may clash or even contradict one another. Individuals may find themselves in a tight spot, because notions about loyalty in one's own family, for instance, may be at odds with the dedication and integrity expected by an employer. The central theme of the book focuses on the involvement of police officers in honor-related cases in their private lives, either as a suspect, a victim, or in some other way. The Colours of the Chameleon thereby not only fills a gap in current honor-related conflict research, but also provides a unique insight into honor codes in the private lives of police officers.
