Our two compelling books zoom in on the third and fourth themes, shedding light on the universal nature of police stop practices across different countries. Despite variations in legal frameworks and socio-political contexts, the familiar pattern of police officers exercising authority predominantly over young men and minority populations is evident.

"The Politicization of Police Stops in Europe" delves into the historical and political controversies stemming from this practice, providing a nuanced exploration of its impact. Meanwhile, "Governing Police Stops Across Europe" argues that while governance alone may not resolve legitimacy and fairness issues, it plays a crucial role in enhancing transparency and accountability in the use of police powers.

Join us in unraveling the complexities surrounding police stops and understanding the broader implications for society.
