... The full research report was published by the Kollaborative Forschungsgruppe (2019). Further work was published focusing on an intersectional analysis of the people's individuals racial profiling experiences (Plümecke and Wilopo 2019), the solidarity infrastructure used to contest racial profiling (Schilliger 2020) and the spatial aspects of racial profiling (Jurcevic et al. 2018). 3 We began this study during the court case of Mohamed Wa Baile in 2016 to bring attention to racial profiling as a social and political issue. ...

This paper addresses the effects and consequences of police checks in Swiss cities. In our participatory and collaborative research, we focus on the perspectives of those for whom racial profiling is part of everyday life. Using a theoretical perspective of subjectivation, we draw on thirty qualitative interviews with members of racialized minorities. We analyse not only the immediate effects of stop and searches such as feelings of humiliation, powerlessness and self-accusation but also long-term consequences such as the restriction of one’s own movement in public spaces, fear of police, social withdrawal and loss of trust in state authorities. Ultimately, we examine the tactics and forms of resistance comprising elements of specific subjectivities that individuals use to deal with racial profiling.
Im Unterschied zu den angelsächsischen Ländern hat der Begriff der ‚institutionellen Diskriminierung‘ in Deutschland wenig Tradition. In der wissenschaftlichen Forschung, der Berichterstattung in den Medien, im politischen und pädagogischen Handeln werden Rassismus, Sexismus oder Diskriminierungen ‚behinderter‘ Menschen primär als Resultat von Vorurteilen einzelner Personen oder relativ klar einzugrenzender sozialer Gruppen (z. B. rassistische oder rechtsextremistische Orientierungen sozio-ökonomisch marginalisierter Jugendlicher) definiert. Dabei wird vielfach unterstellt, diskriminierende Praktiken stellten eine Art ‚Unfall‘ dar – eine Ausnahmeerscheinung in einer gesellschaftlichen Praxis, in der demokratische Prinzipien der Fairness und Meritokratie die Regel sind.
The study of race and ethnic conflict historically has been hampered by in- adequate and simplistic theories. I contend that the central problem of the various approaches to the study of racial phenomena is their lack of a struc- tural theory of racism. I review traditional approaches and alternative ap- proaches to the study of racism, and discuss their limitations. Following the leads suggested by some of the alternative frameworks, I advance a struc- tural theory of racism based on the notion of racialized social systems. "The habit of considering racism as a men- tal quirk, as a psychological flaw, must be abandoned." -Frantz Fanon (1967:77) he area of race and ethnic studies lacks a _ sound theoretical apparatus. To compli- cate matters, many analysts of racial matters have abandoned the serious theorization and reconceptualization of their central topic: rac- ism. Too many social analysts researching racism assume that the phenomenon is self- evident, and therefore either do not provide a definition or provide an elementary definition (Schuman, Steeh, and Bobo 1985; Sniderman and Piazza 1993). Nevertheless, whether im- plicitly or explicitly, most analysts regard rac- ism as a purely ideological phenomenon.
