The Centre for Criminology is pleased to announce the Leverhulme International Network on External Border Control lead by Mary Bosworth. This network draws together three criminological research groups working on the intersections of criminal justice and migration control at the Universities of Oxford, Oslo, and Monash, headed by Mary BosworthKatja Franko Aas, and Sharon Pickering. Through generous funding from the Leverhulme Trust, the network will set up a new open-access SSRN series on the criminology of mobility and, via a series of linked events, support early career scholars working in this field. Researchers will merge data sets based at Border Criminologies (Oxford), the University of Oslo’s ‘Crime Controls and the Borderlands of Europe’ group, and the Border Crossing Observatory(Monash), in order to map commonalities and differences across the geographical regions. In time, the project hope to make the data open access as well. More information about the grant and about the project can be found on the Border Criminologies website here.
