Review of Katja Franko, The Crimmigrant Other: Migration and Penal Power

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review


In this much-anticipated book, Katja Franko consolidates and develops earlier work that analysed the production and surveillance of ‘crimmigrants’ within Europe (Aas 2011), examined processes of ‘bordered penality’ in Norway (Aas 2014) and explored normative tensions between humanitarianism and border control in Europe’s externalised border zone (Aas and Gundhus 2015). Legal scholar Juliet Stumpf (2006) first coined the term ‘crimmigration’ to describe trends in the convergence of immigration and criminal law and procedure in the United States. Franko has developed this terrain within European border criminology, broadening the focus of analysis to include the subjects of penal power whom she calls crimmigrants.
