Criminologists are increasingly pointing to new forms of control that are associated with the regulatory-yet-punitive states of late modernity. This article starts from the premise that the policing of global population movements is an example of an emerging punitive regulatory system that demands urgent attention by criminologists. It articulates an agenda for the critical examination of "migration policing" in Britain set against the backdrop of the historical inclusion & exclusion of immigrant groups, & proposes a "sites of enforcement" framework that is intended to guide further empirical investigations into the operation of immigration control networks. 1 Figure, 62 References.
