On Sept 16 - 18 the Crimmigration Control International Network of  Studies (CINETS) in collaboration with Oxford Border Criminologies are organizing the online conference "Global Borderlands: Getting to the Core of Crimmigration". 

Crimmigration has rapidly become the dominant response to human mobility around the globe. It has emerged, ironically, in tandem with growing economic globalization. For capital, national borders have virtually disappeared, while the walls, virtual and literal, are growing higher for workers and others who need mobility to thrive, and even survive. Race, ethnicity, and personal wealth matter in who gains entry.

This conference will treat crimmigration and bordering holistically as systems nested within economy and society in subtle, and not-so-subtle, ways. In so doing, the conference calls attention to the various 'faces' and experiences of crimmigration and bordering across the globe as well as to a critical examination of the scholarship so far.

During the three days 8 keynote speakers from and working in various parts of the world will reflect on the various ways in which penal power has been introduced into the realm of migration control and what the effects thereof are on countries and communities. During a broad variety of panels junior and senior scholars will furthermore present their work to engage into an active discussion with each other and the audience. As part of the critcial examination of the scholarship so far, the conference will also offer a platform to artists to show and perform their work on matters of migration and bordering practices.
