    Gender and security


    Empirical and conceptual work with colleagues at Monash University concerned with risk, intimate partner violence and comparative policy responses. Primarily reflected in my publications and research work with Dr. Kate Fitz-Gibbon at Monash University along with Jude McCulloch and JaneMaree Maher.

    Criminology and War

    This work with Ross McGarry extends my work on understandings of victimhood into the wider realm of war and its consequences. Alongside the work on gender and security it places issues previously considered separate and separable into the same critical plane and draws on the emergent concerns of Southern Criminology to facilitate this.

    Risk and security

    Arguably underpinning both gender and security and criminology and war is the work on risk and security that I have been engaged on with Gabe Mythen for some time now. This theoretical (and empirical) interest percolates our ongoing work in this arena in which we are further developing a comparative analysis of the writings of Beck and Bauman.
