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. Together we explore the growing interconnections between border control and criminal justice. Run by Mary Bosworth, Border Criminologies is supported through research grants from the European Research Council, the Leverhulme Trust, and the Knowledge Exchange Fund at the University of Oxford.
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.
