Mike Larsen Interview - March 31 2011

Mike Larsen is a PhD Candidate in Sociology at York University, and a Researcher at the York Centre for International and Security Studies. He has a Masters Degree in Criminology from the University of Ottawa. Since 2008, he has served as the Co-managing Editor of the Journal of Prisoners on Prisons: a prisoner-written, academically oriented non-profit journal that brings the knowledge produced by prison writers together with academic arguments for the purpose of enlightening public discourse about carceral institutions. Mike's research deals with Canadian national security practices, particularly as they involve the deprivation of liberty and contestations around government secrecy, public accountability and the right to know. His current work focuses on the Canadian security certificate regime, with an emphasis on practices of detention and surveillance, and makes extensive use of access to information requests. Mike has published in the academic and popular press, including in the Canadian Journal of Law and Society, Contemporary Justice Review, the edited volume Surveillance: Power, Problems, and Politics, and Embassy Foreign Policy Newsweekly.
