Additional chapters are required for a collection entitled Racial Profiling: International, Interdisciplinary Perspectives to be published in 2010. This new collection provides an important multi-national perspective on an issue of great and growing concern, particularly but not exclusively in the context of corporate globalization and neo-liberal governance. Despite the growing significance of regimes of racial profiling, surveillance and tightened border controls in the post-9/11 period, there have been very few extended analyses of racial profiling in different eras and contexts (particularly at borders). The work examines the issue from a transborder perspective, with comparisons, connections and intersections of policy and practice.
Chapters already included examine topics including reframing racial profiling as a human rights rather than civil rights issue, racial profiling and implications for inter/national and human security, racial profiling along borders in the US and the construction of “terrorists” and “illegal aliens,” racial profiling and internment in Canada during WWII, racial profiling and problems of proof and movements opposing racial profiling, among others.
Please submit chapters by (or preferably before) October 2 to the editor:
