The CrimScapes research project (2020-2023) explores the growing mobilisation of criminal law, crime control measures and imaginaries of (il)legality as both responses to, and producers of, the politics of threat and uncertainty that are currently expanding across the European region. It works to analytically grasp the motivations behind, and challenges and implications of, criminalisation for the variety of actors and practices that (re-)shape entangled landscapes of criminalisation around abortion, drug use, hate speech, infectious diseases, sea rescue, sex work and women's prisons. 

CrimScapes is a joint project realised by 11 researchers of four universities, namely Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Université Paris Saclay and University of Helsinki. The project is funded by NORFACE.
