Background

Bio

Dr Anastasia Dukova is a policing historian specialising in the history of municipal policing, with a primary focus on Ireland, colonial Australia and Canada. She is particularly interested in the impact of Irish policing experience on the development of colonial policing models, both state and municipal. Anastasia is investigating continuity of service experience of ex-policemen in Ireland and in the colony, if and how their previous policing experiences in either urban or rural settings shaped these men’s colonial police careers. Her recent monograph, A History of the Dublin Metropolitan Police and Its Colonial Legacy (Palgrave), illuminates the neglected history of the Dublin Metropolitan Police – a history that has been long overshadowed by existing historiography, which has traditionally been preoccupied with the more radical aspects of Irish history. It explores the origins of the institution and highlights the Dublin Metropolitan Police’s profound influence on the colonial forces, as its legacy reached some of the furthest outposts of the British Empire.

Anastasia is an Adjunct Research Fellow at Griffith University Centre for Social and Cultural Research. Previously, she held fellowships at the Griffith Criminology Institute and the University of Toronto, Canada.
