Regional Focus: Europe - Pt. 2

Accessing the Migration Apparatus (Border Criminologies Blog, Nov. 2017) [text]
 - This first post introduces a blog series that reflects on "the way access shapes researchers’ positionality, the scientific knowledge they produce, and our understanding of the modern state. From the Guardia Civil in Melilla to the Finnish border guard and the Israeli immigration detention centres, the institutions to which access was sought are all constituents of what Gregory Feldman described as the European migration apparatus." The seven posts can be accessed via the "See also" menu on the right side.
