About this talk

The roundtable discusses the findings of the recently published Routledge Handbook of Smuggling (available open access). The handbook offers a comprehensive survey of interdisciplinary research related to smuggling, reflecting on key themes, and c harting current and future trends. Divided into six parts and spanning over 30 chapters, the volume covers themes such as mobility, borders, violent conflict, and state politics, as well as looks at the smuggling of specific goods – from rice and gasoline to wildlife, weapons, and cocaine. Chapters engage with some of the most contentious academic and policy debates of the twenty - first century, including the historical creation of borders, re - bordering, the criminalisation of migration, and the politics of selective toleration of smuggling.
