Webinar looks at diversity and non-discrimination

FRA will give a presentation during the European Police College’s public webinar ‘Diversity and Non-discrimination’ on 10 September.

The event aims to increase awareness about the importance of diversity and non-discrimination while discussing the need for building capacity and strengthening safeguards against institutional discrimination in police services. Promising practices and the challenges at both national and EU level will also be covered. FRA’s presentation will address the issue of discriminatory ethnic profiling in police operations, drawing on evidence that it has collected over the years. It will outline the EU legal framework prohibiting discrimination, and what constitutes discriminatory ethnic profiling and how the practice harms trust in the police. It will also cover what has been done to counter discriminatory ethnic profiling. The webinar is open to the public but participants should register in advance.
