In this book, we have sought to outline a new criminology of the border, however, there is much work still to be done. Criminologists are already beginning to build theories which transcend the confines of the modern state, for example, in relation to transnational policing, transnational crime, supranational forms of criminal justice, peacekeeping initiatives and restorative processes within transitional states. The contributors to this collection have addressed an as yet unexplored dimension of this project, by making state borders themselves the focus of critical analysis. In doing so, we have sought in the book to complement and extend the work done on the one hand, by scholars of transnational crime and criminal justice, who are beginning to explore de-territorialised forms of deviance and control, and, on the other, theorists of governmentality and late-modernity, who have identified worldwide trends in forms of governance which are having profound impacts on criminal justice practices within state borders.
