Programm

“Brutal & Routine: Why Police Reform Always Fails and Why We Need Abolition”

Nikki Jones (UC Berkeley) will share some of her work from her current book project, BRUTAL AND ROUTINE, to be published by W.W. Norton Press. The book draws on 20 years of research to crystallize a new and necessary understanding of police violence, with a reasoned argument for the limits of reform and the potential for abolition. The presentation will be followed by an extended commentary by Christy Kulz (TU Berlin), drawing on her own research on the racialization and criminalization of young people in British schools.
