Border Criminologies is an international network of researchers, practitioners, and those who have experienced border control. It is co-directed by Mary Bosworth and Sanja Milivojevic, and managed by Andriani Fili, the Managing Editor. Ana Aliverti and Rimple Mehta are Associate Directors of Development and Networks, Vicky Canning and Francesca Esposito are Associate Directors of Community Engagement and Activism, Katja Franko, Alpa Parmar and Devyani Prabhat are Associate Directors of Research Collaboration, Andriani Fili and Marta Welander are Associate Directors of Communication, Maartje van der Woude, Vicky Taylor, and Samuel Singler are Associate Directors of Events, Monish Bhatia and Anthea Vogl are Associate Directors of Teaching Collaboration. Together with an international editorial board we produce the Border Criminologies Blog. Claudia McHardy is the Book Review editor. Border Criminologies has institutional partnerships with the Border Crossing Observatory (Monash University), the Department of Criminology and Sociology of Law (University of Oslo), the European Border Communities research group at Leiden Law School (Leiden University), CINETS and ANZSOC Crimmigration and Border Control thematic group. Together we explore the growing interconnections between border control and criminal justice. A diverse group of students created the student chapter of the Border Criminologies Network to get young people engaged and expand conversation in immigration issues and injustices, particularly surrounding border control.

Border Criminologies seeks to better understand the effects of border control and to explore alternatives.
