Policing Transversal Borders

Policing Transversal Borders

(p.93) 5 Policing Transversal Borders
The Borders of Punishment

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of border control and transversal borders. It then examines how Australian immigration authorities have become more police-like under pressure to secure borders. It argues that Australian police are increasingly occupied in migration policing roles and that other government and non-government agencies are being drawn into wider migration policing networks. In each context, border policing developments at both the external and internal borders are considered.

Keywords:   border control, border policing, Australia, immigration policy, migration policing, border security
