Gemma Lousley is a Doctoral candidate in the Department of Criminology at Birkbeck, University of London. Her Thesis explores the ways in which racialised narratives about 'unwanted' migrants are seeping into sentencing hearings, and are being mobilised as part of the construction and negotiation of unwanted migrants' punishability. She is also the Policy and Research Coordinator (Detention) at Women for Refugee Women, a charity which works with women seeking asylum in the UK to challenge the injustices of the asylum system.
