Challenging Ethnic Profiling in Europe: A Guide for Campaigners and Organizers
All over Europe, campaigners and organizers are challenging the systemic injustice that is ethnic profiling. During the past decade, they have confronted ethnic profiling by police and others, despite facing severe personal risks, including retaliation, re-traumatization and burnout. Today, communities and activists are developing new strategies, launching creative campaigns, building community power, and bringing innovative litigation to combat ethnic profiling and achieve lasting change.
This guide provides an international overview of what is happening in the field, distilling key lessons and strategic insights learned from over a decade of work on the ground. Filled with dozens of examples, case studies, exercises, and quotations—such as those above—from leading local actors, it provides both concrete ideas to push for change, and inspiration to continue the hard work of challenging ethnic profiling in Europe.
We work with police, activists, and community leaders across multiple European countries to document systemic ethnic profiling by police officers and to put a stop to abuses through new frameworks and policies.
