CINETS - Crimmigration Control - International Net of Studies

CINETS group

This group of research was created in september 2011, after months of conversations by email between Maria João Guia (University of Coimbra) and Juliet Stumpf (Lewis & Clark Law School, USA). Juliet Stumpf has coined the term ‘Crimmigration’ in 2006 and, searching for litterature, Maria João Guia found her excellent papers and contacted her by email, starting this network. After some months of exchanging thoughts and opinions, they have decided to meet and bring to discussion a subject which is a passion to both of them: “the crimmigration”.

That's where a longer plan started taking form: a pannel in the American Law and Society Association conference was organised and other scholars joined them. Robert Koulish (University of Maryland, USA), Maartje van der Woude and Joanne van der Leun (both from Leiden University, Netherlands), joined them at this discussion held in S. Francisco (see past activities). Luigi Solivetti (University Sapienza) couldn't join them at this conference, but he was enthousiast on this project, when Maria João Guia visited him at Rome in February 2011 to speak about this idea and to exchange some thoughts on european and north-american hints on this issue.

Juliet Stumpf and Maria João Guia set up, at that starting time, another two pannels in the 16th Metropolis Conference, held in Azores, september, 2011 where other brilliant academics joined them discussing the subject: Doris Marie Provine (Arizona University), Alan Desmond, Valsamis Mitsilegas (Queen's Mary University, London), João Pedro Campos (University of Coimbra) and also members from the Portuguese State Services Duarte Miranda Mendes from the Portuguese High Coimmissioner for Immigration and Intercultural Dialogue (ACIDI) and André Costa Jorge, (from Jesuit Refugee Service).
At Metropolis conference, another two academic was interested at this project and joined them: Leo Dana, from New Zealand and Shahamak Rezaei, from Denmark.
This was the start of a project who is looking up to bring together scholars who intend to develop comparative studies and issues on the central subject of ‘crimmigration’ and parallel subjects on this one.
A web page was then set up where most of the past and future activities, as well as researchers are presented to public –
During this starting period, Maria João Guia, Maartje van der Woude and Joanne van der Leun decided then to leader the organisation of the first CINETS conference, held in Coimbra, Portugal, where the heart of this network has been funded.
They decided to co-edit the first book that is intended to be the first of a serie of many researches on this topic in the next future. In fact, the next conference CINETS, will be held in Leiden, The Netherlands in 2014, where the next publication will be presented to public.
We are very hapy receiving new interested researchers on this area to join the growth of this Project. Just explore our web page or mail us,

Thanks for your interest,
CINETS Organisation
