New Issue


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).
