Internal Border

Uk Local Immigration Policing: Partnerships and Securitization at the Internal Border

Dean Wilson, from the Plymouth University, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Crime and Society,” under the title “Uk Local Immigration Policing: Partnerships and Securitization at the Internal Border”. Here is the abstract: In 2008, the United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) published a policy document entitled ‘Enforcing the Deal’ which outlined a strategy for increased enforcement against undocumented migrants. Central to such a plan is the creation of ‘Immigration Crime Partnerships’ between the UKBA, local police forces and private and public sector bodies. The strategy is also being supported by the creation of Local Immigration Teams (LITs) staffed by 7500 UKBA employees charged with forging local partnerships, thus embedding immigration policing within local communities. Immigration Crime Partnerships are also based upon extensive data-sharing, such as the sharing of Home Office ‘watchlists’ with key partners, and extending co-operation with other government agencies. Such arrangements indicate that the work of immigration enforcement is being facilitated through the diffusion of immigration policing tasks across the public and private sector. This paper will situate these developments against the broader backdrop of the criminalization of immigration and the blurring of internal and external security within Europe.
