COMPAS Research

COMPAS research covers a spectrum of global migration processes and phenomena, from conditions in places of migrant origins, through to institutions and activities affecting mobility, to social and economic effects in receiving contexts. In particular, COMPAS has developed expertise in relation to migration and the labour market, and migration and urban change. More about the centre >

RSC Research

RSC research centres on factors determining and resulting from the forced displacement of populations, with a strong focus on developmental and humanitarian aspects of forced displacement in the global south. More recently, work has also covered northern regimes and perspectives on asylum, and the ways in which national agendas can better respond to the increasingly complex flows of mixed migration. More about the centre >

Border Criminologies

Border Criminologies brings together academics, practitioners and those who have experienced border control from around the world. Showcasing original research from a range of perspectives, we hope to better understand the effect of border control and to explore alternatives. Through an emphasis on visual resources and first hand accounts we hope to flesh out our understanding of the lived experience of law and policy and to develop the emerging field of inquiry into border control within criminology.
