The issue of immigration and crime, in all of its many contexts and forms, is presently a global problem. This collection of 18 essays stems from a conference on migration, culture conflict and crime, and examines a variety of issues relating to the issue of immigration and crime. Chapters in this volume do not merely question whether the immigrant is victim or criminal, but address wider issues such as gender, and human trafficking/smuggling.;Whilst some pieces discuss immigrants in general others restrict their analysis to particular subgroups. Some chapters only examine one particular country, while others employ a more comparative approach.
