Research overview

Deirdre Conlon is lecturer in critical human geography.  Her work engages the tensions around migration and policies and practices designed to manage immigration. This includes a focus on immigration detention, border enforcement, and local, everyday enforcement practices where carceral spaces proliferate; critical engagement with legal and governmental frameworks that gird citizenship and immigration; and examination of the everyday material and social consequences of ‘fortessing’ and ‘securitization’ as well as activism and advocacy aimed at contesting the inequalities and injustices that coincide with these policies and practices.
