Racial Disparities in Policing in the United States: Toward Understanding & Reform

26.08.2016 13:00 - English

This open lecture is part of the 2016 Bergen Exchanges on Law & Social Transformation.

In this lecture,

Charles Epp
uses his extensive research on police stops and race to illuminate the ongoing controversies over policing in the United States and how to reform policing.

This research was published in the multiple award-winning book Pulled Over: How Police Stops Define Race and Citizenship that was recently twice cited in Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s much-noted dissenting opinion in a recent judgment regarding unlawful police searches (Utah v. Strieff).
