Based at the Centre for Criminology at the University of Oxford, Border Criminologies is an international network of researchers, practitioners, and those who have experienced border control. Established in 2013, with funding from the Leverhulme Trust and the European Research Council, Border Criminologies has become the primary global platform and network for research and knowledge exchange on the intersections between criminal justice and border control. It has also given rise to a new academic subfield that bears its name: border criminology. Through showcasing and facilitating interdisciplinary research from around the world, Border Criminologies contributes to a greater understanding of immigration law and policy, with a particular focus on immigration detention and deportation. This proposal sets out plans for supporting the next five years of research and dissemination, that will expand the network and make it sustainable.
