Summary expansion
Issues surrounding the migration of human beings are some of the most pressing of our time. Through both historical and contemporary material, this book builds on the author's previous work in the area to explore the landscape of crime and migration in Australia. Focusing primarily upon the Australian experience, but illuminated by studies in other countries and at other times, Professor Francis provides a comprehensive account of crime and migration, linking migration policy with criminality and mental health and arguing that it is birthplace, not race, which impacts upon crimes committed by migrants. Covering a diverse range of issues from the police, courts and prisons to victimology and immigration policy, this book will appeal to scholars across Criminology, Sociology, Law, Migration Studies and Politics
