The introduction situates the scope of the study and the key arguments advanced in Boats, Borders, and Bases. It details research questions, methodology, and key concepts the book uses to explore the interrelations between border fortification, migration deterrence, militarization, and criminalization. It presents prevailing explanations for the remote locations of detention facilities and proposes a more systematic approach for explaining the geography of U.S. detention expansion.

Keywords:   migration deterrence, borders, militarization, remoteness, migration detention, regional racialization, transnational carceral geographies
