Mr Stuart Lister
Senior Lecturer in Criminal Justice
I joined the School of Law in 2001, working on a series of linked research projects in the areas of crime prevention, policing and security.
In 2004, I was appointed to a lectureship in the School to teach and research criminology, victimology and criminal justice.
Scholarly and Research Interests
My research interests come together around exploring the changes and continuities in the provision, role, function and effectiveness of contemporary policing and security endeavours.
In particular, I have a long-standing interest in the governance of security in the night-time economy. My other research interests include the security of older people and distraction burglary.
At undergraduate level, I teach a variety of core modules within the BA Criminal Justice and Criminology degree (including Crime Prevention and Community Safety, Policing, Understanding Crime, and Victims, Crime and Victimology).
At postgraduate level, I teach Policing and Criminal Justice Processes, and dissertation supervision.
I would welcome supervision enquiries that accord (broadly) with my research interests as detailed above.
