Event description

Description

"From 'community policing' to 'plural policing' provision: Evolving understandings of 'policing'"

Professor Philip Stenning, Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia

Philip will be talking about developments in policing from 'the police', via 'private security', to 'plural policing provision', and implications for what 'policing' involves, under whose auspices it is being undertaken, and how it can and should be democratically governed and held publicly accountable in the future. The lecture will draw on policing research, policy and practice.

Philip's academic career has taken him from England to Canada (1968-2002), New Zealand (2003-2005), back to England (2006-2011), and on to Australia (2011-2017). He is now officially 'retired' and living back in England, but still holds an Adjunct Professor appointment at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia, and a Visiting Professor appointment at Leeds University here in the UK. He is also a professorial Fellow at the Australian Institute of Police Management. Policing, in all its guises, has been his principal (but certainly not only) research, teaching and publishing focus. Relevant to this lecture, his most recent major publication is his book, Governing the Police: Experiences in Six Democracies (Transaction Publishers, 2016), co-authored with Professor David Bayley, from the State University of New York at Albany.

Teas and coffees will be available from 3pm with the lecture starting at 3.30pm.
