What to Make Of (Border) Violence

In this lecture, Professor Mary Bosworth will draw on material from a long-term, mixed-methods research project with staff in the UK deportation and short-term immigration detention system, to reflect on how criminologists and socio-legal scholars conceptualise, study, and understand institutional(ised) violence.  

This event is presented by the Centre for Criminology & Sociolegal Studies and co-sponsored by Woodsworth College and the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto. 

The annual John Ll. J. Edwards Memorial Lecture is delivered in honour of the Centre’s founder, Professor John Llewellyn Jones Edwards.
