EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS
Violence, risk and safety: The changing face of Australian criminal laws
Criminal laws have been radically transformed to keep Australians safe from violence.
This project aims to complete the first national study of how and why criminal laws have proliferated and diversified so significantly.
This project employs novel conceptual tools for investigating the "drivers", "processes" and "modalities" of criminalisation, as well as complete socio-legal studies of sexual and domestic violence, homicide, alcohol-related violence, public disorder and the activities of criminal groups.
