Human Rights, Antidiscrimination and Executive Power

Project deals with the relationship between minorities, antidiscrimination, and diversity within executive power (especially the German police). It is focused on phenomena of exclusion/discrimination of minorities within the police or through the police and on the general question of interaction between executive power and minorities. The project is based on a qualitative research design and reconstructs the hidden discrimination structures and well as identity dimensions. As an outcome in 2020, several presentations and a workshop ‘Gender and the State: Police, LGBT*, Borders and Identity — Theoretical and Practical Encounters’ organised together with CIERA were conducted and a special issue in International Journal of Gender, Sexuality and Law was edited.
