Justice Initiatives, June 2005: Ethnic Profiling by Police in Europe

Ethnic profiling, the inappropriate use by law enforcement of ethnic
characteristics in identifying criminal suspects, is widespread but
under-researched in Europe. Ample evidence of the practice exists, from
the wholesale targeting of Roma neighborhoods in central Europe to the
counter-productive reliance on profiling to fight terrorism in Northern
Ireland and, more recently, in France, Germany, Sweden and elsewhere.
Justice Initiatives June 2005 examines ethnic profiling by police in
Europe, and explores the methods used in the United States and the
United Kingdom to confront it. Justice Initiatives is online in full and
