September 2013

In France, police identity checks disproportionately target young men of North African and Arab origin.

In this report, we present the personal stories and portraits of people who deal with this discrimination every day of their lives. Hear the voices of people who know the pain of being singled out because of the color of their skin—and of police officers who want things to change.

Their individual stories tell a larger story that challenges traditional French assumptions about the equality of all citizens before the law.
