Policía y racismo en Brasil: elementos para pensar en el cambio

En la última década, al menos dos factores han contribuido a poner en primer plano la cuestión del racismo en la policía. En todo el mundo se han acumulado los efectos del encarcelamiento y la brutalidad policial dirigida a grupos racialmente marcados, lo que ha llevado a la sociedad civil a dirigir sus críticas al modelo policial configurado por la doctrina antiterrorista. Esta doctrina devolvió al ámbito de la seguridad interior categorías, procedimientos y tecnologías forjadas para la guerra contra el enemigo, reforzando la militarización de la policía. El segundo factor fue la aparición de un pensamiento negro antirracista dedicado a reflexionar sobre los propios mecanismos del racismo en la policía, la justicia penal y las prisiones.

Police and racism in Brazil: elements for thinking about change

In the last decade, at least two factors have contributed to bringing the issue of racism in policing to the forefront. Worldwide, the effects of incarceration and police brutality directed at racially marked groups have accumulated, leading civil society to turn its criticism to the policing model shaped by the anti-terror doctrine. This doctrine brought back to the field of internal security categories, procedures, and technologies forged for war on the enemy, reinforcing the militarization of policing. The second factor was the emergence of a black antiracist thought dedicated to thinking about the very mechanisms of racism in the police, criminal justice, and prisons.

Is statistical standardization across countries possible?

Within a State, a uniform classification of offenses based on legal codes facilitates comparative data analysis and the exchange of information between different institutions of the police and criminal justice system. On the other hand, at the regional level, harmonized definitions and classifications are necessary for the comparability of records and for analyzing regional trends.


Police reform in Uruguay (or how to make an elephant trot)

The metaphor is useful to think about the path taken by the Uruguayan National Police in recent years. Between 2010 and 2020, this elephant of 33,000 officers woke up from a long nap and was put to trot towards the most significant police reform process since the return to democracy, which even presented innovative features in the Latin American context.
