Default Council of Europe’s anti-racism commission warns against racial profiling in policing

Council of Europe’s anti-racism commission warns against racial profiling in policing

July 6, 2020

The Council of Europe’s 47-member anti-racism commission, ECRI, warned against racial profiling, as well as systemic racism and inequalities, all of which are to be found in Europe. ECRI has called upon European governments to send strong messages and take determined action, even if these instances may only be isolated events, and reiterated that trust in the police by everyone in the society enhances safety for all.

“Racial profiling constitutes a specific form of racial discrimination and must be expressly prohibited by law,” ECRI reminds. “It generates a feeling of humiliation and injustice among those groups that are subjected to it, results in their stigmatisation, negative stereotyping and alienation, and hinders good community relations.” According to the European Court of Human Rights, racial profiling can result in “institutionalised racism”.
