Research agenda

Australian Border Deaths Database

The Australian Border Deaths Database maintains a record of all known deaths associated with Australia’s borders since 1 January 2000.

Borders and Border Control

Control of migration is becoming an increasingly important task of contemporary policing and criminal justice agencies. Projects on external and internal border control are an important part of the Border Observatory’s research.


Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery

Human trafficking in all its forms has been the subject of significant debate and discussion, though empirical research in the area remains limited. The Border Observatory is conducting research into this important topic.
