Julie Ayling is a Visiting Fellow in the RegNet School of Regulation and Global Governance, part of the Crime, Policing, Security and Justice Group and of the Climate and Environmental Governance Network (CEGNet). She holds degrees in arts and law with first class honours from Macquarie University and a Masters in International Law from the ANU. She is admitted as a barrister and solicitor in the Australian Capital Territory and a solicitor in New South Wales. Julie is currently working with Prof Neil Gunningham on the ARC Discovery Project Energy governance and climate change: towards a low carbon economy, focusing particularly on the fossil fuel divestment movement and its role in climate change mitigation. Her interests in environmental regulation and criminology are reflected in her research into strategies to deal with Transnational Environmental Crime (TEC), with a focus on the illicit wildlife trade. This work continues following the successful completion of a three year ARC Linkage Project on TEC (see website below).

Julie’s ongoing work on illicit organisations and criminal networks, and the strategies and prevention models that states can use to effectively deal with them, has practical application for criminal policy-making and law-making. Outlaw motorcycle gangs, youth gangs and organised crime groups are of particular interest. She has explored how better criminal laws might be crafted to deal with serious and organised crime. She also has an interest in the resourcing and effectiveness of policing organisations. She is author, with Professors Peter Grabosky and Clifford Shearing, of Lengthening the Arm of the Law: Enhancing Police Resources in the Twenty-first Century, published by Cambridge University Press in 2009 as well as publishing many articles in high-quality peer-reviewed journals.
