Deportation and the Institutionalized Failure of Border Logistics with Mary Bosworth

Professor Mary Bosworth of the University of Oxford will explore the logistics of border control in the UK and the US. Bosworth will explain how border control operates like a business, with easily replaceable workers, financial goals, and incentives. She will compare deportation practices in both countries, highlighting how these systems are a mix of public and private efforts. Like all logistic systems, these are designed with failure built in.

Viewing border control as a type of labor and a marketplace opens up new ways to understand and critique these practices. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a fresh perspective on the complexities of border logistics.
