This article conceptualises carceral economies of migration control. First, I argue that “privatization” signals a reorganization of authority, rather than a relocation of ownership from public to private domains. Second, I argue for greater attention to the socio-technical practices of measurement and valuation specific to migration control through which commodification becomes possible. Third, this reorganization of authority has produced (1) status value, a form or value specific to immigration policing’s juridico-political position; and (2) valuation practices that translate, commensurate and circulate migrant life as a marketizable entity.
