The Runnymede Trust published this report on racism and policing in Britain late in 2015. It brings together academics, practitioners and activists to examine the state of policing and its effects on black and minority ethnic communities: "In Britain, black and minority ethnic people are disproportionately represented in the criminal justice system at every level, from arrests to stop and search, to imprisonment, to deaths in custody. Successive governments' counter-terrorism policies have resulted in racial profiling and over-policing of Muslim and Asian communities, and have fed a pervasive Islamophobia now affecting Britain and other European societies."
