An interesting study has been published by the the French Agency CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) addressing the ethnic profiling operated by the French Police in Paris ( district Les Halles). The report, written in French, is accessible on the CNRS web site.

This study has been funded by the Georges Soros foundation named Open Society Foundations. The survey was directed by the Open Society Justice Initiative, a branch of the Open Society Foundation, which has already published two interesting reports:
Muslims in Marseille; An at Home in Europe Project
Addressing Ethnic Profiling by Police; A Report on the Strategies for Effective Police Stop and Search Project.

The Soros foundation also adress issues in the public health field in its Public Health Program.
