Abstract
The collection considers the growing importance of the border as a prime site for state activity and the impact of such activity on human rights and global justice. It explores how state activity on the border simultaneously creates and responds to crime, criminalizing individuals who irregularly cross borders while ignoring far more harmful cross border activities committed by powerful actors. This book extends understandings of borders in order to make sense of the shifts in the ways states exercise power and control over activities that are connected to or impact on borders, and the consequences of these actions, particularly for vulnerable groups. Covering subjects from e-trafficking, child soldiers, the “global war on terror” in Africa and police activities that generate crime, this collection analyses material on a broad range of issues related to transnational crime and countermeasures from North American, European and Australian sources.
