    Abstract: The intersection of race and the criminal justice system has been a longstanding topic of activism, public debate and research in the US context. In recent years, European countries have also seen a growing social and academic debate about the way racialized minorities are policed. Based on ethnographic research in Amsterdam, this article argues that in order to understand such racialized policing, we have to go beyond a narrow focus on the police itself, and instead examine the broader institutional landscape tasked with security. This institutional landscape is made up of penal and welfare actors who together enact what I call diffuse policing. Such diffuse policing envelops targeted persons and spaces in a dense web of surveillance, and disciplinary and reform interventions that are hard to escape or challenge. This article explores the cumulative effects of this dense security landscape, and argues that it produces significant inequalities among youths in Amsterdam.

    Abstract: As we write this essay, Donald Trump has been inaugurated as the forty-fifth president of the United States, it is just six months after the Brexit vote, and just two months before the Dutch elections. Many commentators connect Trump’s win with looming electoral victories by Far-Right parties in the Netherlands, France, Germany, and Italy. We argue that this particular moment in Europe is one of an anxious politics that testifies to a struggle with how to deal with the consequences of earlier colonial histories in contemporary society. This anxious politics “is characterized by heightened anxieties about the fate of the different nation-states that constitute Europe, and based on a projection of the ills currently imagined to face Europe . . . on to specific subjects, often racialized Others” (Modest and De Koning 2016, 98). After both Brexit and Trump’s wins at the polls, the United Kingdom and the United States saw a surge in claims to the nation by many who saw in immigrants and Muslims (among other minority groups) not just a burden to the nation but also a threat to its security and to its future. A virulent nationalism manifested itself. This nationalism is echoed across continental Europe in the rising popularity of extreme-right parties that have unified on an anti-immigration, anti-Islam,and anti-European Union platform.The Netherlands is no exception. Geert Wilders’s Freedom Party has had growing support and is predicted to garner the most votes in the March 2017 elections. The nationalist sentiments he propagates have long since become mainstream.
