The rise of the Black Lives Matter movement on both sides of the Atlantic has placed the relation between policing and race as one of the central political concerns of our age. Policing the Planet: Why the Policing Crisis Led to Black Lives Matter (Verso) critically interrogates how we struggle to overcome racialised policing, and what strategies can communities use to resist police violence.
Join editors of Policing the Planet Jordan T. Camp and Christina Heatherton in conversation with Adam Elliott-Cooper, a teaching fellow in the Department of Sociology, University of Warwick, and Laleh Khalili, Professor of Middle East Politics at SOAS, to discuss the race and the police, rise of Black Lives Matter, and strategies for resistance.
