From the Field is Border Criminologies new 'mini-post' series featuring news from researchers currently in the field. To start it off, Border Criminologies researcher Bethan Loftus provides an update on her recent fieldwork. More will follow soon.
Along with analysing various documents, I spent time with a police department responsible for policing one of the border towns, as well as conducting interviews with representatives from a civil liberties organisation and those in the border policy environment. I aim to write an article based on this field trip in 2014.
