AbstractThis paper offers a comparative case-study of the internal dynamics of diversity of the Mossos d’Esquadra (police force of the Catalan autonomous community, Spain) and the Politie Utrecht (police force in the province of Utrecht, the Netherlands). The cases are described in a comprehensive way (including policies in all relevant policy areas: recruitment, retention, and promotion) and analyzed with an analytical framework to identify what the definition of diversity is, why diversity within the organisation is perceived as important, and how diversity within the organisation is facilitated with policies. The goal of this paper is twofold: first, to offer a deeper understanding of the internal dynamics of diversity of the two police forces by comparing their particular contexts, and second, to demonstrate the academic potential of the analytical framework.
