Overview

In this era of mass mobility, the difference between those who are permitted to migrate and those criminalized, controlled, and prohibited from migrating is often linked to race. Placing race at the centre of its analysis, this volume brings together fourteen essays that examine, question, andexplain the growing intersection between criminal justice and migration control. Through the lens of race, we see how criminal justice and migration enmesh in order to exclude, stop, and excise racialized citizens and non-citizens from societies across the world within, beyond, and along borders. Organized in four sections, the book begins with chapters that present a conceptual analysis of race, borders, and social control, moving to the institutions that make up and shape the criminal justice and migration complex. The remaining chapters explore the key sites where criminal justice andmigration control intersect: policing, courts, and punishment. Together the volume presents a critical and timely analysis of how race shapes and complicates mobility and how racism is enabled and reanimated when criminal justice and migration control coalesce. Race and the meaning of race inrelation to these processes and the impact it has on notions of citizenship and belonging are carefully examined through each of the chapters presented in the book, transforming the way we think about migration.
