Border Criminologies


Andriani is a Wellcome Trust Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Criminology, University of Oxford. Her PhD research was the first national study of immigration detention centres in Greece, mapping the immigration detention system and recording resistance mobilized against it. Her current research project explores the role and impact of health provision on people inside immigration detention centres and after release in Greece. Drawing on a range of sources of evidence, it further examines the continuity of experiences of medical care across and beyond these spaces and through time, tracing connections between zones of quarantine and confinement for those deemed undesirable in the country. In Greece she is also involved in countermapping activities of migrant containment spaces in collaboration with local civil society actors.
