Based at the Centre for Criminology, University of Oxford, Border Criminologies brings together academics, practitioners and those who have experienced border control from around the world. Showcasing original research from a range of perspectives, we hope to better understand the effect of border control and to explore alternatives.
We have an open call for guest posts that:
Profile interesting and innovative projectsthat challenge ideas about border control, identity, and belonging (e.g. http://bordercriminologies.law.ox.ac.uk/can-immigration-officers-predict/ )
- Bring news from those currently in the field, (we run a series of mini-posts entitled From The Field, seee.g. http://bordercriminologies.law.ox.ac.uk/from-the-field-betrayed-by-norway/)
- Discuss policy developments or current events(e.g. http://bordercriminologies.law.ox.ac.uk/uk-immigration-act-2014/ )
- Provide personal perspectives of migrants, detainees, refugees, and others experiencing border control (e.g. http://bordercriminologies.law.ox.ac.uk/photo-story/)
- Review books, reports and other resources recently launched(e.g.http://bordercriminologies.law.ox.ac.uk/book-review-sans-papiers-the-social-and-economic-lives-of-young-undocumented-migrants/)
- Report on workshops, seminars and other events (e.g.http://bordercriminologies.law.ox.ac.uk/reflections-from-stockholm/)
The blog entries are usually between 500 and 1500 words and we like to include photos whenever possible, as well as link to other resources as appropriate (e.g., news stories, project websites, etc.). Submissions are reviewed by the editorial team. More on how to contribute at http://bordercriminologies.law.ox.ac.uk/join-in/
