With the support of secondary literature, archival research, and interviews, project members will develop CrimeLines (i.e., genealogical timelines) of different European crimscapes (of drug use, migration, sex work, infectious diseases, prisons, LGBT identities, and hate speech). Ethnographic fieldwork will then enable conceptualizing the citizenship dynamics emerging in the navigation of democratic participation and freedoms with legal regulation and crime control measures. Building on this, researchers will highlight and open for discussion dilemmas of democratic governance to enhance actors’ lived realities, rights claims, and desired futures.
