Crime, Punishment and Migration

Crime, Punishment and Migration

September 2015 | 128 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

In the globalized world an extensive process of international migration has developed. The resulting conundrum of issues when examining crime and migration makes for a bitterly complex and intriguing set of debates.

In this compelling account, Dario Melossi provides an authoritative take on the theory and research examining the connection of crime, migration and punishment.  Through a socio-historical and criminological approach, he shows that the core questions of migrants' criminal behaviour are tightly related to the rules and practices of migrants’ reception within the various countries’ social and normative structures.

Written for students, academics, researchers and activists with an interest in the topic, the book will appeal to individuals in a range of disciplines, from criminology and sociology to politics, international relations, ethnic studies, geography, social policy and development.
