Personal profile

Summary of Research Interests

My research interests are largely in criminology related to police corruption, state corruption and methods of crime control. In particular, I like to study police corruption in developing and war-torn states and how it impacts on poverty, development and terrorism. My research includes mechanisms of crime control within indigenous environments, namely in developing and war-torn contexts. Moreover, I research on other criminology-related disciplines. These include international terrorism and human rights.
