Racial Profiling in Policing: Scot Wortley at the Max Bell School of Public Policy

July 6, 2021 by Cate MacLeod

Professor Scot Wortley recently participated in  Racial Profiling in Policing, an online conference hosted by the Max Bell School of Public Policy at McGill University. The event "brought together speakers with expertise and personal experience to discuss innovative policy solutions and to foster community trust among marginalized and racialized communities, including Black people, Indigenous people and people of colour."

Professor Wortley participated in Panel 2: “Why Aren’t We There Yet?" Four Decades of Evidence | Racial Profiling in Policing

Panel description: "Policy guidance based on laws, human rights-based approaches, codes of ethics, and data collection are at the heart of the principles and practices needed to move forward. What do we know about efforts to create accountability so far, and what are the obstacles to moving forward?

With Marlene Jennings, Scot Wortley, Anne-Marie Livingstone, and Kanika Samuels-Wortley."

Following the conference, the Max Bell School published a Q&A with Professor Wortley, with questions posed by attendees.

The conference's list of recommended readings, which was provided ahead of the event, featured numerous works by CrimSL faculty, students and alumni:
