On Monday 7th November Border Criminologies launched its Guest Twitter project, which aims to give the floor to emerging scholars, researchers, and practitioners from around the world to share their work, ideas, opinions and news from their countries, etc. Our first guest was Ana Ballesteros Pena, who among other things, shared important information about immigration detention and border control in Spain. Our second guest was Rose Broad, who was live tweeting from the American Society of Criminology conference. Next week, we would like to welcome our third guest, Teresa Piacentini.

If you are interested in participating in this project please contact Andriani Fili (andriani.fili@crim.ox.ac.uk)
