Nicholas Blomley is Professor of Geography at Simon Fraser University, British Columbia. He is interested in the spatiality of legal practices and relationships, and the worldmaking consequences of such legal geographies. Much of his empirical work concerns the often oppressive effects of legal relations on marginalized and oppressed people. He is the author or co-editor of five books, including Law, Space, and the Geographies of Power (1994) and Rights of Passage: Sidewalks and the Regulation of Public Flow (2010). Celine Bellot is Director of the Social Work School at the Universite de Montreal and Director of the Observatory on Profiling (Observatoire des profilages). She is the Chair of the Center on Poverty and Social Exclusion (Centre sur la pauvrete et l'exclusion sociale) and the Committee on the State of Homelessness.
