Immigration Article of the Day: All-Foreign Prisons in the United States, England and Wales, and Norway: Related Logics and Local Expressions
The Immigration Article of the Day is All-Foreign Prisons in the United States, England and Wales, and Norway: Related Logics and Local Expressions by Robert Hallam Tuck, Dorina Damsa, and Elizabeth Kullman. The article was just published in the journal of Theoretical Criminology and available here.
Here is the abstract:
Norway, England and Wales, and the USA are among a small number of affluent Western countries to establish ‘all-foreign’ prisons in response to public concerns about the growing threat of foreign-national prisoners. Drawing on collaborative analysis of empirical data collected at all-foreign prisons in these three countries, this article traces the conditions in which all-foreign prisons emerged, the position and function of all-foreign prisons in specific national systems of criminal justice and immigration control, and the operation of all-foreign prisons within each context. The article points to a shared logic, while drawing attention to the local expressions of bordered penality.
