To mark one year since the release of Stealing Time: Migration, Temporalities and State Violence, Victoria Canning (co-editor with Monish Bhatia, Birkbeck, University of London) highlights the reasons why the book theme was chosen, and why it is important for us to recognise the active, often deadly mechanisms by which state and corporations steal migrant time as deliberate. In this short video, Vicky outlines the key aspects of the book, and introduces us to the three chapters on which we focus on in our blog series this week at Border Criminologies.
