Background

Katja Franko is Professor of Criminology at the Department of Criminology and Sociology of Law. Born in Ljubljana, Slovenia, she studied law at the University of Ljubljana (1996), and obtained her PhD degree from the University of Oslo (2003), where she was appointed regular professor in 2009.

Special Fields

Katja’s primary research interests are in globalization, migration and border control, international police co-operation, and on the uses of advanced information and communication technologies in contemporary crime control strategies. She is particularly interested in the relationships between state power and crime control under conditions of globalization.

Katja has just completed a monograph entitled "The Crimmigrant Other" (published in Routledge's Key Ideas in Criminology 2020). Together With David R. Goyes she is currently working on a project on the impact of global entertainment industry on collective memory of violence in Medellin. Previously, she has been member of the core group in NORDHOST.

From 2011 to 2016 she headed a research project about the intersections of migration control and penal power, entitled Crime Control in the Borderlands of Europe, funded by the European Research Council (ERC). Together with Helene O. I. Gundhus, she conducted research on the European agency for the management of external borders Frontex.

Katja has published widely in globalization, migration control, security and surveillance of everyday life. Globalization and Crime (SAGE 2019) is now in its 3rd esition.She is also author of The Borders of Punishment: Migration, Citizenship, and Social Exclusion (co-edited with M. Bosworth; OUP, 2013), Cosmopolitan Justice and its Discontents (co-edited with C. Baillet, Routledge, 2011), Technologies of Insecurity (co-edited with H.M. Lomell and H. O. Gundhus; Routledge-Cavendish, 2009), and Sentencing in the Age of Information: from Faust to Macintosh (Routledge-Cavendish, 2005).

Awards

She was, together with professor Helene Gundhus, awarded the British Journal of Criminology Radzinowicz Prize 2015 for the article Policing Humanitarian Borderlands: Frontex, Human Rights and the Precariousness of Life.

Her book Sentencing in the Age of Information: From Faust to Macintosh was in 2006 joint winner of the Socio-Legal Studies Association Hart Book Prize.
