Policing the border: security, human rights and gender

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

Policing the border has serious implications for national security and human rights concerns. Internationally
the fastest growing group of persons undertaking extra legal border crossing are women. This will be the first
international study of border policing that includes women and therefore develops a more comprehensive
understanding of unauthorised border crossing and itspolicing. It will develop a comprehensive regulatory
framework for broder policing that is locally grounded and globally connected, adaptable to the changing
gender dimensions of mobility, human rights and the future challenges of extra legal border crossing.
