Overview

Nick Gill is a political geographer. He graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science with a degree in Geography with Economics in 2000. Following the award of his PhD in 2008 he was a lecturer in geography at Lancaster University, moving to take up a position as Lecturer in Human Geography at Exeter in 2010 and being promoted to Professor of Human Geography in 2016.

Nick has served as Book Review Editor of the journal Space & Polity and as Communications Officer and Secretary of the Political Geogeraphy research group of the Royal Geographical Society. He is a member of the ESRC's peer review college and the current human geography external examiner of the University of Oxford's undergraduate geography degree programme.

Nick engages with a range of non-academic organisations through his work. From 2015-2017 he was Trustee of the charity City of Sanctuary, a national charity that promotes a culture of welcome and hospitality to those seeking safety from violence and persecution. From April 2017 to July 2018 he served as a member of the charity JUSTICE's working party on immigration and asylum determination reform resulting in a report entitled 'Immigration and Asylum Appeals - A Fresh Look' that recommended a series of improvements to the first tier asylum and immigration tribunal. From the summer of 2018 he has been involved in a partinership with the chariry Asylum Aid to produce a video to inform asylum appellants about what to expect on the day of their hearings.

Nick's work played a part in the High Court case between Detention Action and the Lord Chancellor concerning the legality of the Detained Fast Track (DFT) that led to the judgement that the DFT was unlawful.

Nick's work has been funded by the Nuffield Foundation, the Economic and Social Research Council and, since September 2016, by the European Research Council via a Starting Grant.

Broad research specialisms:

Legal geography, carceral geography, migration and border control, mobility, political geography.

Research

Research interests

My research is concerned with issues of justice and injustice. I explore this theme through a geographical approach, especially in the context of border control, mobility and its confiscation, incarceration and the law. I believe in the effectiveness of multiple methodologies, and have employed interviews, ethnography, focus groups and quantitative analysis in my work.

There are currently three strands to my research

1. Border Control, Migration and Human Mobility

Border control is one of the most topical issues of the 21st century. My work questions the utility and feasibility of the contemporary configuration of international border controls (Gill, 2009, Refuge; Gill, 2016, Wiley-Blackwell). It examines the relation between mobility and forced migration (Gill et al, 2011, Mobilities), sets the current malaise surrounding border control into the broader context of tolerance and intolerance (Gill et al, 2012, Political Geography) and examines the tactics used to respond to militarised control practices around the world (Gill et al, 2014, Annals of the Association of American Geographers).

2. Carceral Practices and Spaces

The proliferation and diversification of carceral systems is a hallmark of contemporary Western society. They are increasingly big-business, increasingly divorced from commonsense notions of justice, and increasingly obscured and obfuscated (Gill, 2013; Moran, Gill and Conlon, 2013). This strand of research seeks to take account of the emerging and increasingly intricate circuitry of carceral establishments (Gill et al, 2017, Progress in Human Geography).

3. The State, Injustice and Justice Systems

I am pursuing my long standing interest in the state and state theory (Rodriguez-Pose and Gill, 2003, EPA; Rodriguez-Pose and Gill, 2004, Regional Studies: Gill, 2010, Progress in Human Geography) via an exploration of the difference geography makes to systems of justice (even, sometimes, when it shouldn't). This strand of research has a range of issues from observed biases in judicial behaviour (Gill et al, 2017, Socio-Legal Studies), the importance of ethnographic apporaches to legal system (Gill and Good, 2018, Asylum Determination in Europe; Ethnographic Perspectives, Palgrave) and the way ethically meaningful encounters are suspended in legally institutionalised contexts (Gill, Nothing Personal? 2016, Wiley-Blackwell).

Currently I am exploring issues of legal omnipresence and lawlessness, working with literature from legal geography and legal anthropology.
