Monash Criminology Honours students participate in policy mobilities and crime control workshop

A group of current and former Honours students took part in a two-hour workshop on the international mobility of policies led by two Distinguished Visiting Scholars, Professors Trevor Jones (Cardiff University) and Tim Newburn (LSE).

Following a brief introduction to key concepts and methodological debates, Professors Jones and Newburn proceeded to reflect on their influential research on criminal justice ‘policy transfers’ between the United States and the United Kingdom.

Monash Criminology lecturer Jarrett Blaustein then spoke briefly about the ethnographic approach he adopted for studying ‘policy translation’ in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Students were then asked to reflect on how the concept of policy mobilities might relate to their own research projects and future research plans.
