In this entry the concept of criminalization of migration is presented. Criminalization refers to the set of practices such as border control, detention of undocumented migrants and public discussion of migrants as criminals which serve to place migration within a frame of threat to national security. The entry briefly introduces the concept of criminalization, discusses the legislative and discursive processes of criminalization and then summarises work on the impact of this trend and criticisms.
