MARCH 25, 2021, 1 p.m - 5 p.m
In July, 2020, the Max Bell School of Public Policy affirmed its mission is to bring together people from varied perspectives to explore and design policy solutions, including solutions to the problem of racism.
In 2020, unprecedented protests against anti-Black racism have brought the issue of police accountability for excessive force and, in some cases, police brutality, to the fore not only with respect to Black people, but also for Indigenous people and people of colour. There is no national law or consistent standard in Canadian policing that prohibits random stops and similar practices that are at the core of police racial profiling everywhere.
What can we learn from these events, and what innovative solutions can foster community trust and safety?
Our 2021 Policy Lecture will tackle a number of issues across a broad spectrum of public concerns and from a diverse range of perspectives, offering a comprehensive look into complex policy topics.
