New Book by CJC Member Ioana Vrăbiescu 'Deporting Europeans: The Racialized Mobility of Romanians in France'
“Deporting Europeans reveals an unexpected feature of the political, institutional and cultural entanglement between two EU countries, Romania and France. Contemporary structural dependencies are rooted in a deeply neo-colonial predicament that perpetuates the inferior position of Romania vis-à-vis France and results in the implementation of policies that ultimately disadvantage and discriminate against some of the most vulnerable citizens in the EU. By analysing the deportation of Romanians from France, the book shows how policing the mobility of poor EU citizens, who are often identified as Roma, is effectively a racist policy. Deporting Europeans uncovers the justifications set forward by states in policing for deportation and in normalizing violence. The book argues that EU citizens deportation within the EU territory serves the reinforcement of state sovereignty in relation to processes of globalization. Curbing the freedom of movement, re-articulating borders and racializing the policing of certain EU citizens attest to neo-colonial patterns that structure power relations and legitimize hierarchy in Europe. This book is a compelling contribution to decolonial critique of state power in the European continent.”

CJC Members publish new article in ‘Law & Human Behavior’
CJC Members Divya Sukumar, Dr. Kimberley Wade, and Professor Jacqueline Hodgson have co-authored a paper titled Truth-tellers stand the test of time and contradict evidence less than liars, even months after a crime in Law and Human Behavior. This paper looks at the impact of the phased disclosure of evidence to truth-tellers and liars, over time. This 'law-psychology' collaboration, with Ms. Sukumar’s doctoral research at its heart, has produced new and exciting insights, drawing on both disciplines, as well as a number of inter-disciplinary publications which in the past have been published in Criminal Law Review, Psychology Public Policy and Law, and the International Journal of Evidence and Proof.
