(p.157) 8 Criminal Law
Racism and Equality in the European Union

Mark Bell

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines EU law and policy in the fields of criminal law and criminal justice and considers the extent to which they reflect the objectives of combating racism and promoting ethnic equality. It begins with a detailed scrutiny of the Framework Decision on Racism and Xenophobia adopted in 2008 and the concept of racism which it portrays. It notes how the issue of racism has been incorporated into legal instruments on cross-border judicial cooperation. In contrast, EU funding programmes in the criminal justice area or measures relating to data collection and criminal law have not substantially addressed issues of institutional racism within the criminal justice system.

Keywords:   racism, mainstreaming, criminal justice, Framework Decision, xenophobia, racist crime, incitement, policing, ethnic profiling
