Personal profile

Personal profile

Emma Colvin's research aims to help create a just and safe society through examination of specific areas of interest in the criminal justice system.  Her research on bail support services included a comparative analysis of service provision in urban, suburban and regional areas, exploring the concept of postcode justice. She is particularly interested in the intersection of vulnerabilities and how this impacts on peoples’ experiences in the criminal justice system.

In her most recent projects, she examines these experiences in the context of bail and out-of-home care. She is currently working on two externally funded Criminology Research Grants exploring these issues, including as a member of a national bail research team, comprising members from the University of Tasmania, Deakin University, University of South Australia and Griffith University.

Emma is currently a Deputy Co-Editor of Salus Journal. She was the Managing Editor of the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology from 2010-2012 and the Editor of PacifiCrim, newsletter of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology, from 2016-2018. She has been Chair of the Bathurst Regional Council's Community Safety Committee since 2014.
