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.
