This panel seeks to under­stand the crim­i­nal­iza­tion of immi­grants in a long term perspec­tive. With this panel, it is less about exploring the supposed crim­i­nality of migrants, but rather of the way trav­eling groups and newcomers ended up before the police and the courts. Any papers focusing on prac­tices of crim­i­nal­iza­tion of migrants, the treat­ment of migrants by street-​level bureau­crats, the police and the courts, are welcome : As the panel should also provide an oppor­tu­nity to make compar­isons over time and space, papers from any place or time period are welcome. This panel will be chaired by Pr. Manon van der Heijden

If you are inter­ested in partic­i­pating in this panel, please get in touch with Elie-​Benjamin Loyer (Université Paris Nanterre, France): Please don’t hesi­tate to pass on this call to any colleagues who you think might be interested.
