This work introduces examples of ethnic profiling in European
counter-terrorism and analyzes possible after-effects on a theoretical
basis. Primary effects, which are generally considered positive, are
contrasted with secondary effects and methodological breaches, for
instance the over- and under-inclusion of a profile, substitution and
negative effects on the social life of the targeted group. The
implications are documented with examples taken from the European
counter-terrorism context and discussed in relation to European legal
standards. The discussion closes with a proportionality test.
