Immigration Article of the Day: Immigration Detention, Punishment, and the Criminalization of Migration by Mary Bosworth and Sarah Turnbull
Immigration Detention, Punishment, and the Criminalization of Migration by Mary Bosworth (University of Oxford - Faculty of Law; University of Oxford - Border Criminologies) and Sarah Turnbull (University of Oxford; University of Oxford - Border Criminologies). June 16, 2014 in S. Pickering and J. Hamm. The Routledge Handbook on Crime and International Migration. (September 2014 Forthcoming)
Abstract: This chapter will set out the historical development, typologies, experiences, and impacts of immigration detention, concentrating on Australia, the United Kingdom, the European Union, Canada, and the United States. The aim of this chapter is to show the relevance of immigration detention to the field of criminology, including the ways in which this form of incarceration is similar to and different from ‘traditional’ penal logics and institutions. In doing so, it will highlight how immigration detention reflects the broadening reach of penal power and of race, gender, and postcolonial relations in a globalizing world.
