Authors

Keywords:

Discrimination, racial profiling, European law, Critical Race Theory

Abstract

The awareness that racial profiling is becoming a major issue for European antidiscrimination law is growing, yet this is one of those issues whose nature is far from undisputed. This essay intends to put forward the idea that racial profiling is (1) discriminatory, (2) inefficient and, most importantly, (3) part of the process of racialising certain groups within a society. The essay proposes a shift in the understanding of the question by adopting a Critical Race Theory (CRT) perspective.
