This edited volume celebrates the significant contributions of Peter Grabosky to the field of Criminology, and in particular, his work developing and adapting regulatory theory to the study of policing and security.

Over the past three decades, his path-breaking theoretical and empirical research has contributed to a burgeoning literature on the myriad ways regulatory systems drive state and non-state interactions in an effort to control crime.

This collection of essays showcase Grabosky’s pioneering treatment of key regulatory concepts as they relate to such interactions, and illustrate how his work has been instrumental in shaping contemporary scholarship and practice around the governance of security.

About the speakers

John Braithwaite is a Professor and Founder of the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet). He is leading a 25-year Peacebuilding Compared project that seeks to code 700 variables for all the world’s major armed conflicts since the end of the Cold War. His latest book is Cascades of Violence (with Bina D’Costa, 2018). In criminology his work on restorative justice is one of his best known contributions, and in regulatory studies his works on responsive regulation and the globalisation of regulation are well known.

Russell Brewer is a Senior Lecturer in Criminology at Flinders University. He has a PhD in Criminology from the Australian National University. His research interests include policing, crime prevention, Internet crime, and social networks. In particular, his work seeks to establish the significance of networks as a tool for providing a clearer understanding of the risk factors that lead to deviance, as well as the structural characteristics of policing responses to criminality. He has published his findings through several leading publication outlets, holds multiple nationally competitive grants, and has been called upon by Government Agencies both domestically and abroad to advise on policy.
