I am pleased to announce that the latest issue of Anti-Trafficking Review has published an article by myself and Marinella Marmo on the non-medical use of x-rays in British immigration control history, especially their use for assessing the age of teenage migrants. The article is titled ‘Examining the Body through Technology: Age Disputes and the UK Border Control System’ and is available for free download here. The article is part of a special issue on human rights at the border and also features other articles by many other prominent scholars in the area of the border and migration studies. Anti-Trafficking Review is an open access journal and is fairly new, so please disseminate this announcement as widely as possible.
As usual, we welcome any feedback that you may have.
