Title: COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS ON POLICING RACIST CRIME AND VIOLENCE


1
COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS ON POLICING RACIST CRIME AND
VIOLENCE
Dr Robin Oakley Independent Consultant
2
CONTEXT
  • Follows Report on Racist Violence in the EU15
  • Focuses specifically on response of police (EU25)

3
METHODOLOGY
  • Rapid Response Survey
  • October 2004
  • Short questionnaire
  • National Focal Points (NFPs)
  • Twenty five Member States
  • Respond within fourteen days
  • Provides snapshot overview

4
SCOPE
  • police recording practices for racist crimes
  • responsibility for establishing racial motivation
  • police responses to victims of racist crimes
  • training provision for the police to respond to
    racist crimes
  • police engagement with civil society

5
MAIN FINDING
  • In the majority of Member States police responses
  • to racist crime and violence require further
  • development to make them effective.

6
SPECIFIC FINDINGS
  • Approaches differ widely between Member States
  • A minority show examples of good practice
  • Often only specific or local-level initiatives
  • General lack of comprehensive policing response
    to racist violence
  • UK shows the most comprehensive policing approach
  • France, Germany and Sweden also show serious
    commitment

7
SPECIFIC FINDINGS (continued)
  • No provision for recording racial motivation in
    crime generally in most States
  • Information on ethnicity of victims/offenders
    rarely recorded
  • Support for victims of racist crime needs to be
    strengthened
  • Few states had specialist training in place
  • Many initiatives just address multiculturalism
    and racism generally
  • Police engagement with civil society needs to be
    further developed

8
ACTIONS AT MEMBER STATE LEVEL
  • Need for adequate legal and policy framework
  • Police leadership to show commitment
  • Requirement on police to record racial
    motivation in crime
  • Statistical analysis of all racially-motivated
    crime
  • Procedural guidance for police on response to
    racist crime
  • Specialist training to be provided, with input
    from NGOs
  • Specialist posts to be established at
    national/local levels
  • Mechanisms to encourage/facilitate reporting of
    racist crime

9
ACTIONS AT E.U. LEVEL
  • Need for further in-depth research on policing
    responses
  • Urgent need for comparative victim survey across
    Member States
  • Legislation to require Member States to have
    adequate law on racist crime
  • Should include requirement on police to record
    racial motivation
  • Funded programme to support strengthening of
    police response
  • To include support for NGO participation
  • Transnational events to exchange
    experience/promote good practice
  • Actions to be coordinated with work of other
    international bodies
