Abstract

What is the relevance of racial or ethnic profiling in the German police forces? Which techniques lead to a focus on ascribed criteria like e.g. ethnic origin, provenience or religion instead of using objective evidence or behavior for effective policing? The author is discussing both, dimensions and consequences of ethnic/racial profiling in Germany as well as meaningful strategies for education and prevention.
