The Borders of Punishment

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the factors that have shaped contemporary practices of migration control. It traces the long historic trajectory of relationships between capitalism, migratory movements, and processes of criminalization. It highlights the centrality of migratory movements for the historic formations of the working class, and thus the relevance of Marxist theory for the understanding of historic and contemporary processes of migration control. Finally, by outlining the changing relationships of migration and penality, the chapter aims to challenge the lack of consideration given to such relationships in much of the theoretical and analytical writing within criminology.

Keywords:   punishment, political economy, migration control, capitalism, migratory movements, criminalization, Marxist theory, working class
