Anna Pratt’s current research is a major study of the recently introduced Canada-U.S. Integrated Cross Border Law Enforcement Program known as ‘Shiprider’. She is the author of “Securing Borders: Detention and Deportation in Canada” (Vancouver: UBC Press, 2005). She has carried out a major study of the culture and organization of frontline border control in Canada and has published findings on law and discretion, the crime-security nexus, racial profiling and risk. Anna has also examined bordering technologies that mobilize vigilant citizens and communities within Canada, such as the CBSA Most Wanted List as well as the operations of discretion and jurisdiction in the deportation of long term permanent residents from Canada. Anna teaches Criminology in the Department of Social Science at York University.
