Research Agenda

Australian Border Deaths Database


Human trafficking in all its forms has been the subject of significant debate and discussion, though empirical research in the area remains limited. The Border Observatory is conducting research into this important topic.


Borders and Border Control

Control of migration is becoming an increasingly important task of contemporary policing and criminal justice agencies. Projects on external and internal border control are an important part of the Border Observatory’s research.


Gender and Borders

The Border Observatory centers the important of gender as it has often been marginalised within border research. The central aim of these projects is understand the impact of gender on migration, in the realms of border crossing and border policing.
