The latest issue of International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy includes a special issue on border criminology.
Rimple Mehta (Western Sydney University) and Ana Aliverti (University of Warwick) have curated a set of articles that explore the limits of existing theories for “understanding migration governance from a Southern perspective and what the potential for rethinking border controls and their study, such as alternative epistemological and methodological approaches, might engender.” (Mehta and Aliverti 2023).
In this special issue Southern Perspectives on Border Criminology, the articles bring together the different geopolitical, sociocultural and economic ways in which borders in the Global South are imagined, constructed, negotiated and reconstructed. Many of the authors in this special issue are early career researchers who, through engaging with postcolonial theory and decolonial approaches, are fostering novel perspectives within border criminologies.
