Abstract:The aim of this study is to find out how it is possible that ethnic minority youngsters in Germany are equally prone to ethnic profiling by police officers as ethnic minority youngsters in the Netherlands, despite seemingly fewer opportunities for ethnic profiling for German police officers. Earlier quantitative research found these results among youngsters in different Dutch and German cities and earlier qualitative research did not provide for a conclusive explanation for these findings. For this research, eight interviews have been conducted with police officers in both countries, four in each country. The main goal of these interviews was to find differences and similarities in the attitude towards proactive policing in the two countries and to see how these might influence proactive policing in practice.
