Professor David Harris was the lead U.S. speaker at the "Roundtable on Current Debates, Research Agendas, and Strategies to Address Racial Disparities in Police-Initiated Stops in the UK and USA," at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York on August 11 and 12.  The conference, sponsored by the Open Society Institute and John Jay, brought together academics, policy makers, advocates and law enforcement officers for two days of comparative analysis and discussion of stop and frisk law and practices in the U.S. and the U.K., and the produced agendas for further research and a plan for action by advocates.  Papers by Professor Harris and other participants will be published as an edited volume in 2012.
