New Study of Police Stop and Search within British Muslim Communities

24th May 2018

Dr Julian Hargreaves, Research Fellow at the Woolf Institute, has just had an article published in The British Journal of Criminology. The article reports a study of police stop and search within British Muslim communities using data from the Crime Survey of England and Wales.

The article also calls for the reform of police recording practices.
