The Border Crossing Observatory’s Dr Leanne Weber has just released Policing Non-Citizens (Routledge, 2013) in which she discusses the detection of unlawful non-citizens as a distinct form of policing which is impacting on a growing range of agencies and sections of society.
Part of the Routledge Studies in Criminal Justice, Borders and Citizenship, this book constitutes an important contribution not only to the literature on policing but also to the field of border control studies within criminology.
Colleagues from Border Criminologies at Oxford University’s Centre for Criminology, have written a blog post about this new publication which includes acclaim for the book as being “among the first to systematically address the issue of internal border controls”.
For more information on the issues surrounding policing non-citizens, visit our Migration Policing research project webpage.
You can order a copy of the book here.
