This chapter argues that contemporary migration control practices disrupt traditional frames of understanding within criminal law and criminology. In the field of crime control, migration destabilizes some of the central categories and building blocks of the national penal domain. It also highlights the importance of spatialization and geopolitical context as key to understanding criminalization under conditions of globalization. By situating contemporary crime control within a broader context of international relations, it shows how global inequalities are inscribed into (domestic) crime control and criminalization patterns, and how they in turn reinforce and reify these inequalities.

Keywords:   punishment, migration control, immigration policy, criminal law, criminology, crime control, globalization, international relations, inequalities
