A Qualitative exploration of Scottish-Pakistanis’ experiences of policing.

  In providing an understanding of the experiences of Scottish Pakistanis, findings will be of significant benefit to policy makers and practitioners, and will assist policing organisations in Scotland to improve their engagement with minorities. This research topic is novel in using a psychosocial qualitative approach to look at experiences of policing, self-policing and self-surveillance within the Scottish-Pakistani community. It has important policy implications because of current concerns about hate crime and islamophobia in Scotland, and because of the impact of various processes of policing on the sense of belonging in minority communities. The project is timely in light of recent incidents of domestic terror acts and the spotlight under which this community has been placed.
