Working Group 2

Understanding Experiencing of Police Stops in Europe

Description

WG2 will develop a research protocol, identifying the information to be sought about each European state in order to establish a baseline. This information will include information from civil society organisations and lawyers representing citizens experiencing Police Stops, academic research into experiences and journalistic sources. WG2 will analyse the information gathered to develop our understanding both of the experiences and of the different ways of gathering and recording that
evidence. WG2 will also identify those states where there is a lack of evidence and understanding of the experience of Police Stops. The data will be presented both as an annotated bibliography and as an interactive on-line resource revealing the experiences in different states, offering legal advice for those subject to stops and identifying further resources. WG2 will look to use social media to elicit experiences and accounts from citizens, exploring the Apps currently available and looking to augment
these with blogs and other interactive platforms to encourage the sharing of evidence.
