The Negotiated Expansions of Immigration Control

Introducing The Negotiated Expansions of Immigration Control

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to announce a recent accomplishment by members of our collaborative research network: the publication of a special issue in Law & Social Inquiry (LSI). Titled The Negotiated Expansions of Immigration Control, the issue explores how global migration control anticipates, quells, and co-opts resistance efforts as it continues to expand. The issue was edited by two of the CRN’s current organizers, Jamie Longazel and Maartje van der Woude, and features articles written by some of our members. All of the articles are now available on LSI’s website. The table of contents is as follows:

“New deterrence scripts in Australia’s rejuvenated offshore detention regime for asylum seekers”
by Sharon Pickering and Leanne Weber

“Crimmigration in the Netherlands?”
by Maartje van der Woude, Joanne van der Leun and Jo-Anne Nijland

“Rhetorical Barriers to Mobilizing for Immigrant Rights: White Innocence and Latina/o Abstraction”
by Jamie G. Longazel

“Peripheral Matters: The Emergence of Legalized Politics in Local Struggles over Unauthorized Immigration”
by Doris Marie Provine, Martha Luz Rojas-Wiesner, and Germán Martínez Velasco

“Temporary Protection, Enduring Contradiction: The Contested and Contradictory Meanings of Temporary Immigration Status”
by Miranda Cady Hallett

“From Problems of Living to Problems of Law: The Legal Translation and Documentation of Immigrant Abuse and Helpfulness”
by Sarah Morando Lakhani

“The Limits of Discretion: Challenges and Dilemmas of Prosecutorial Discretion in Immigration Enforcement”
By Marjorie Zatz and Nancy Rodriguez

In addition to encouraging you to give the issue a read, we would also like our members to consider similar collaborative projects you might like to undertake. This project was a great success, not just in terms of producing a lot of good scholarship, but also in strengthening our intellectual community. If you have ideas for a similar project, let us know and we will happily work with you to bring it to fruition.


Jamie, Maartje, and Marjorie
