Departmental Lecturer in Criminology at University of Oxford, Associate Director at Border Criminologies

Dr Alpa Parmar is Departmental Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Oxford.

She works on understanding the everyday consequences of border control and where crime and immigration cross over. In particular her work considers the ways that visible minority ethnic groups are affected by migration control and the impacts this can have at the community level. Her research asks how notions of criminality and migrant status coalesce in contemporary times and through the criminal justice system, and how migration acts as a way to understand the working of societies more broadly.

She co- supervises the PhD project "Vertical interventions? The local politics of crimmigration control in intra-Schengen borderlands."
