Carlos Felipe Bustamante Faculty Member

Carlos Felipe Bustamante is an Assistant Professor in Sociology at The George Washington University. His research and teaching interest focus on Policing, Urban Sociology, Criminology, Deviance and Control, and Race and Ethnicity. He is currently working on two research projects. The first compares the policing of restricted forms of entertainment in Oakland, California, Stockholm, Sweden, and Lima, Peru. It investigates how city officials and police agencies target local “problems,” and how policed groups respond to and resist different forms of control. His second project researches the emergence of police transparency laws brought about by high-profile incidents of police violence and misconduct. This work considers how these laws contribute to new forms of police accountability, modify policing practices, and realign the key actors and agencies that shape law enforcement.
