Police violence is on the rise worldwide, inflicting life-changing trauma on predominantly minority communities. This unsettling trend underscores the pervasive nature of systemic state violence across the globe. Our Rights at Risk podcast episode delves into this dark reality with Yasser Louati, a prominent French human rights advocate. Louati is one of the protagonists of Le Repli and participated in a panel on police violence that we organised at the 2024 International Film Festival on Human Rights (FIFDH). In this podcast, he reveals the intricate mechanisms that fuel police brutality, driven by deep-rooted institutional racism.
