Karine Côté-Boucher has a degree in Sociology and in Refugee and Migration Studies. Situated in the area of critical studies of security and surveillance, her work is centered on the practices of different private and public actors in border security and is organized according to two axes. The first focuses on the actual transformation of occupational security cultures. The second is centered on safeguarding the mobility of products and the industry of cross-border road transport.
