A panel discussion exploring what ethical principles should guide policy and law in promoting public safety.
New York University Press recently released The Ethics of Policing: New Perspectives on Law Enforcement, the result of a conference hosted by the Rock Ethics Institute that featured leading scholars in Black studies, criminology, history, law, politics, and other fields. This panel uses that book as a starting point to explore what ethical principles should guide policy and law in promoting public safety, especially in light of concerns raised by protest movements like Black Lives Matter.
