Beth will receive a bursary to work on a literature review and policy analysis on the project ‘The politics of in/visibility in immigration detention’, led by criminology lecturer Raphael Schlembach.

The initiative is funded by the university’s Centre for Spatial, Environmental and Cultural Politics.

The student intern will play a central role in meeting the project’s aims, particularly by carrying out work on an academic literature review, a thematic analysis of legal documents and by producing a database of relevant reports and reviews into immigration detention.

Beth, who is due to graduate this summer, will also use the internship to develop an application for postgraduate research funding.
