Kimberly Burke: Policing and the Social Psychology of Bias

Kimberly Burke:

Policing and the Social Psychology of Bias

How can we make sense of persistent racial disparities in police behavior in the absence of overt prejudice? Kimberly Burke offers insights into disparities in law enforcement outcomes from a social psychological perspective. Based on research from the Center for Policing Equity (CPE) and narratives from her experience training police departments across the country, Burke will highlight the promises and limitations of a social psychological approach to police reform. Burke is a PhD student in Sociology at UC Berkeley and an affiliated researcher at CPE.
