Borders are more than geographical lines - they impact all our lives, whether it's the fallout from Brexit or the inhumanity of a detention center.

The British Empire, about which Britons know little, can be remembered fondly as a moment of past glory, as a gift once given to the world. Meanwhile immigration laws are justified on the basis that they keep the undeserving hordes out. In fact, immigration laws are acts of colonial seizure and violence. They obstruct the vast majority of racialised people from accessing colonial wealth amassed in the course of colonial conquest.

Debunking media myths that vilify migrants, In her book Border Nation Leah Cowan dives into the murky waters of corporate profiteering over borders from companies like G4S, and the exploitation of migrants through the shady rhetoric of modern slavery. She looks at what it is really like to be a migrant in the UK, and how detention and deportation damage the mental and physical health of the people who need support, not hostility.
