How Drowning at Sea Has Become a Crime Control Strategy

Francesca Soliman

The University of Edinburgh

Wednesday 22 November 2017

Chrystal Macmillan Building
Seminar Room 4

The increasingly common framing of migration through a criminal lens has turned migration control into a form of crime prevention, which decreases legal safeguards yet attracts limited scrutiny. The rise of ‘crimmigration’, the blurring of boundaries between criminal and migration law, has created a hybrid legal framework. Non-citizens inhabit a state of exception in criminal law. The presentation will suggest that a social harm approach is best suited to critically evaluate states of exception in contemporary crimmigration control practice.
