Jarrett Blaustein is an Associate Professor and the Director of Education in the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) in the College of Asia and the Pacific at ANU. His interdisciplinary research explores how and why societies govern and deliver security during or in anticipation of complex crises. Much of his work to date is anchored in the idea that policing is best conceptualised and studied as networks or webs of actors whose interactions collectively serve to advance or reproduce particular versions of social order. His current work examines how different policing networks and actors in Australia and globally are adapting to risks, harms and crises associated with climate change.

Jarrett has also published on the topic of global crime governance and his most recent book Unraveling the Crime Development Nexus (with Tom Chodor and Nathan Pino; Rowman & Littlefield 2022) featured third on the prestigious International Affairs 2023 Summer Reading List.

Jarrett is also an Associate Editor of Policing and Society and a Research Affiliate at the ESRC Vulnerability & Policing Research Centre based at York University in the UK. Prior to joining ANU in 2022, Jarrett held tenure-track positions at Aberystwyth University (2013-2015) and Monash University (2015-2022).
