Crime Control in the Borderlands of Europe – Related Links

The Project Team for Crime Control in the Borderlands of Europe are also involved in several other projects related to border control run out of the University of Oslo. 

Policing Immigrants

What kind of impact do immigration control objectives have on the nature of contemporary policing?

This project is an analysis of the National Police Immigration Service in Norway – the police unit responsible for identification of foreigners, registration of asylum seekers, deportation of foreign nationals and for the management of a detention centre near Oslo airport.

The project aims to give insight into the practical impact of immigration control objectives in the national and local contexts of policing.

Policing the Borderlands of Europe

A study of transnational policing, this project asks “how is a border surveillance system created? What kind of data gets collected, who has access and why, and what is the potential impact on the individual populations involved?”

This project will map the various migration control strategies on the European level within the so-called ‘Area of Freedom, Security and Justice’.

The project aims to study the recently established European external border control agency, Frontex comparing it to traditional forms of national and transnational policing in terms of organisational objectives and police culture, and to examine the planned extension of the EU border control databases.

The ‘Insiders Outside’ and the ‘Outsiders Inside’

The study aims to map the processes of social exclusion and how they differ with regard to citizens and non-citizens in Norway. By doing that, it aims to provide insight into the different faces of sovereignty – welfare and criminalisation: when and why the state chooses one over the other, with regard to which populations and with what consequences?

This project is a comparative study of patterns of social exclusion in Norway aiming to analyse how they differ with regard to citizens and non-citizens.
