Based at the Centre for Criminology at the University of Oxford, Border Criminologies is an international network of researchers, practitioners, and those who have experienced border control. Founded and run by Mary Bosworth, Border Criminologies is supported by research grants from the John Fell Fund and the ESRC through their Impact Acceleration Account. Further funding is provided by Goldsmith Chambers and Garden Court Chambers. The Associate Directors -- Ana Aliverti, Vanessa Barker, Ines Hasselberg, and Alpa Parmar -- each lead specific aspects of the project while Andriani Fili is the Managing Editor of the Blog. Together with Ines Hasselberg, Rimple Mehta and Gabriella Sanchez are the Book Review editors. Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll is Artist in Residence. Niamh Quille is Student Editor in Law. Border Criminologies has institutional partnerships with the Border Crossing Observatory (Monash University), the Department of Criminology and Sociology of Law (University of Oslo) and the Leiden Law School (Leiden University). Together we explore the growing interconnections between border control and criminal justice. In 2013 Border Criminologies established the first open access journal on migration, criminal justice and borders research.
Border Criminologies brings together academics, practitioners, and those who have experienced border control from around the world to better understand the effects of border control and to explore alternatives.
