Race, Criminal Justice, and Migration Control

Race, Criminal Justice, and Migration Control

Enforcing the Boundaries of Belonging

Edited by Mary Bosworth, Alpa Parmar, and Yolanda Vazquez

  • A collection of essays that considers how societal practices, laws, and criminal justice institutions delineate who belongs and who does not, and how these factors affect racial minorities across the world, in strikingly uneven ways
  • Brings race to the centre of its analysis in order to reveal how migration and its control is inherently racialized
  • Demonstrates how the architecture of legislation, the process of criminal justice, and the institutions of criminal justice and border control conspire and coalesce to grant some people citizenship, while denying it to others
  • Essential reading for lawyers, criminologists, criminal justice practitioners, migration scholars, and sociologists, as well as general readers approaching the topic for the first time

Mediterranean Contaminations

Author: Giuliano Mion (ed.)

The Medi­ter­ra­nean is a sea that has expe­ri­enced extra­or­di­nary contacts, conf­licts, enco­un­ters and exchanges through the centu­ries. This comple­xity is analysed in the present volume through the eyes of twelve scho­lars specia­lised in Middle Eastern and North African studies.
Arabic and Semitic lingu­istics and dialec­to­logy, Arab lite­ra­ture and popular music and culture are some of the broad range of subjects included in this volume which engages diffe­rent geogra­phical areas of the so-called Mare Nostrum and various histo­rical periods, from the medieval to the contem­porary era.
