Crimmigration in the Shadow of Sovereignty:
III CINETS Conference

October 6-7, 2016

Stamp Student Union
University of Maryland, College Park, MD


The Crimmigration in the Shadow of Sovereignty CINETS Conference on October 6-7, 2016 at the University of Maryland, College Park featured the themes: federalism and sovereignties, technologies and control, borders, enforcement and detention, and trafficking and forced migration. This conferences was co-sponsored by MLAW Programs, a state-of-the-art collaboration between the University of Maryland, College Park and the Francis King Carey School of Law in Baltimore. For several years, scholarship on crimmigration has been flourishing, attracting scholars from various disciplines to focus on the intersection of crime control and immigration control. The concept has proven to be very useful in making sense of the systemic criminalization of migration in many western liberal democracies. The theme of the conference, In the Shadow of Sovereignty, reflected our desire to continue to extend crimmigration scholarship along lines of securitization, national identity, and federalism. The conference endeavored to facilitate international and comparative dialogue and scholarship integrating critical social and legal theory with empirical research.
