Criminal Justice

Black and minority ethnic groups are over-represented in the criminal justice system, under-represented in the legal profession (particularly among judges), and too often criminalised by sections of the press. They also continue to suffer from racist violence and harassment.

Runnymede's work seeks to identify challenges to race equality in criminal justice and offer solutions to them. Our projects include in-depth research on asbos and race equality, examination of how prevention strategies can be applied to reduce racist violence, campaign against disproportionality in stop and search, and analyses of BME groups as 'suspect populations'.
