New report from IRR and CoDE Out Now
Today, we publish a new report, A threat to public safety: policing, racism and the Covid-19 pandemic.
Published by the IRR, and authored by academics from the Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE), it raises concerns about the policing of the pandemic and shows that racially minoritised communities have been most harshly affected – being more likely to be stopped by the police, threatened or subject to police violence and falsely accused of rule-breaking and wrong-doing.
The report’s authors are Scarlet Harris (University of Manchester), Remi Joseph-Salisbury (University of Manchester), Patrick Williams (Manchester Metropolitan University), and Lisa White (Liverpool John Moores University).
Founded in 2013, the Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE) is the UK’s leading centre of research into ethnic, racial and religious inequalities. Based at the University of Manchester, academics from universities across England and Scotland carry out research on mapping inequality, education, culture, politics, activism, health, mental health and ageing.
