Professor Clifford Shearing holds positions at the Universities of Griffith, Cape Town and Montreal. A principal focus of his academic work has been on widening criminology’s boundaries, with a primary focus on ‘security governance’. His policy and applied work has been concerned with enhancing safety. Shearing’s research and writing has become increasingly centred on criminology’s responses to the challenges of the Anthropocene.
