To keep your essay focused on answering the specific question you have been asked, I would suggest looking back at the essay question after each paragraph you write, and thinking: am I still answering the question? How has the paragraph I have just written help me to answer the question I am addressing?
MUST use and engage with the core articles and readings that have been provided as that initiates the passing mark and it will also help you to keep your essay focused on the specific question you’re tackling.
– i.e. the increasing involvement of the police in England and Wales in the management and regulation of immigration. So, as a starting point you should look at the required readings for Week 4 of the course, where we studied the policing of migration. In particular, the chapter by Alpa Parmar listed in the Module Guide, entitled ‘Policing migration: Race and nation in the UK’ is a very important reading, which will help you to develop an answer to the question you have chosen.
As you will see, in her chapter Parmar writes about issues including why the police decide to question certain people in police custody about their immigration status. She notes how someone’s darker skin colour often prompted the police to ask if they were British or not. As a consequence, Parmar argues that the policing of migration reflects and reproduces an exclusionary notion of belonging and citizenship, in which Britishness is very much associated with whiteness/lighter skin colour. This is a really important starting point for your essay, as the question is asking you to consider how the police’s involvement in migration control influences notions of citizenship and belonging, with specific attention to issues of race and racism.
