Border Criminologies: The rise (and fall?) of the Strasbourg case law regarding human trafficking
Marie-Bénédicte Dembour is Professor of Law and Anthropology at the University of Brighton. An accomplished researcher and teacher as well as a passionate advocate for migrants’ human rights, she recently authored When Humans Become Migrants: Study of the European Court of Human Rights with an Inter-American Counterpoint (Oxford University Press, 2015). This original and insightful study has been praised by Françoise Tulkens, former judge and Vice-President of the European Court of Human Rights as ‘an intelligent, lucid and courageous book that takes the debate into new territory'. You can discover its main ideas in 30 short podcasts available on Marie’s blog. As a partner in the recent EU-funded MinAs project, Marie co-authored with Jo Wilding the UK national report ‘Whose Best Interests?’, which explores unaccompanied minors’ rights. The report (2015) is also available on her blog.
