Jarrett Blaustein

Jarrett Blaustein is a Senior Lecturer at Monash University in Australia. His research interests include the global governance of crime and the transformation of policing in response to climate change. Jarrett is a Research Fellow in the Global Risk Governance programme, University of Cape Town.

He is fundamentally concerned with how security is governed and delivered in different contexts, and how multi-scalar and poly-centric governance and policing assemblages adapt to crisis and change. As a criminologist with training in International Relations, much of his work is anchored in nodal governance theory. He is primarily a qualitative researcher with specialist expertise in policy ethnography, documentary analysis, and elite interviewing, but has also collaborated with quantitative researchers.
