Too often, people in Europe are singled out by law enforcement based on their ethnicity, race, religion, or national origin. When law enforcement target people based who they are and not what they have done, it is called ethnic profiling.

Research and the lived experiences of minority communities shows that ethnic profiling is a pervasive problem across Europe. This fact sheet outlines the impacts of ethnic profiling on people's lives and their communities.

It also discusses the challenges facing advocates who seek to end the discriminatory practice and provides them with key recommendations to address ethnic profiling.

The fact sheet is available in English, French, German, and Spanish.
