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 ESRC through their Impact Acceleration Account, the ISRF, and by the NWO. Further funding is provided by Goldsmith Chambers and Garden Court Chambers. The Associate Directors -- Vanessa Barker, Sanja Milivojevic, Alpa Parmar, Juliet Stumpf, and Maartje van der Woude-- each lead specific aspects of the project while Andriani Fili is the Managing Editor. Gabriella Sanchez, Sanja Milivojevic and Peter Mancina are the Book Review editors. Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll is Artist in Residence. 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 European Border Communities research group at 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. In 2018 we launched a new video project. You can read more information about it here and you can watch the first videos on our YouTube channel.
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.
