  • Routledge Studies in Criminal Justice, Borders and Citizenship [+]

routledgeSeries Editors: Katja Franko Aas (University of Oslo), Mary Bosworth (University of Oxford), Sharon Pickering (Monash University). Globalizing forces have had a profound impact on the nature of contemporary criminal justice and law more generally. This is evident in the increasing salience of borders and mobility in the production of illegality and social exclusion. Immigration and its control are highly charged topics in contemporary crime policy and politics.
