Border policing: gender, human rights and security

This will be the first international study of border policing that examines women’s decision making in relation to border policing and aims to develop a more comprehensive understanding of unauthorised border crossing and its policing.

It seeks to produce robust evidence capable of supporting a regulatory framework for border policing that is locally grounded and globally connected, adaptable to the changing gender dimensions of mobility, human rights and the future challenges of extra legal border crossing.
