This IMI working paper by MSc in Migration Studies alumni Luke de Noronha aims to unpack the figure of the 'foreign criminal'.
This paper examines the racialised and gendered stereotypes invoked in the construction of ‘foreign criminals’ in the UK’s Foreign National Prisoner (FNP) crisis of June 2006. Through analysing media articles, parliamentary debates and NGO documents, the author argue that race and gender matter in migration debates.
This working paper has been developed from Luke's Masters Dissertation. Students in the MSc in Migration Studies receiving a distinction for their thesis are invited to publish a modified version as an IMI and COMPAS joint working paper.
