End of Policing Book Club

Posted by Sandra Borden for Study of Ethics in Society

William Santiago-Valles, associate professor emeritus of Africana Studies, will be leading discussions of Alex S. Vitale’s End of Policing (2018). The author, professor of sociology and coordinator of the Policing & Social Justice Project at Brooklyn College, argues that reforms focused on accountability and training will not succeed in ending police violence. Rather, alternatives to policing itself, such as restorative justice, are needed. Some of the questions to be explored are: Who profits from the problem of police violence? What can we learn from groups that are addressing this problem, and what else do we need to know to explain the causes of police violence? Upon registration, the Center for the Study of Ethics in Society will send participants details for joining the meetings.

Date: Monday, Mar. 01 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm Monday, Mar. 08 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm Monday, Mar. 15 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm Monday, Mar. 22 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm Monday, Mar. 29 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm
