Categories: Latest News
Friday January 04 2013
The UK is one of the few EU Member States which collects and regularly publishes data on the incidence of stop and search on ethnic minorities. The Home Office and Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) have regularly published in this area demonstrating the disproportionate number of stops and search conducted on Blacks and Asians in the UK. This In Focus looks at the practice across Europe, the incidence of anti-Muslim discrimination, trust in policing and recommendations by the EU’s human rights agencies to protect the civil, religious and political rights of European Muslims.
