Border Criminologies has launched a new video project. The video project is part of our broader efforts to reach a wider audience, contribute to public debate on immigration and crime control, challenge the criminalization of migration, and end the violence of border controls. We began filming during the 5 year anniversary event ‘Beyond Critique’ to take advantage of the critical mass of border criminology participants, including researchers, practitioners, and community organizers. Throughout the day, we filmed conversations with panellists and participants about their thoughts on the main themes of the conference and ideas about the future. We had asked them to imagine a different future and what it would take to get there. Relying on low-key smart phone technology, we tried to capture the main arguments of the panellists but also their informal exchanges and unexpected interventions.
As we understand the power of collective movements and importance of collaboration for innovation, we welcome members to contribute videos of their own. We are developing two streams of video projects: one based on Border Criminologies research findings that can contribute to public understandings and debate; and the second based on ideas for reform and a future without border violence. If you would like to contribute, please follow the guidelines and suggestions here.
