International Perspectives on Policing and Race: the US, the UK, and South Africa
On behalf of the Arkansas Global Changemakers Initiative we would like to invite you to the first Fulbright Scholars Social Impact Series presentation.

The panel will place recent controversies over police bias and violence into global context. It will also consider the impact of police violence allegations in the United States on international policing, as well as comparative views on the relationships among race, policing, and health outcomes. The panelists will discuss systemic and cultural differences in the approach to policing in the three countries while also highlighting efforts to address the problem at the political, legal, and grassroots levels.
