Harry Blagg

Professor of Criminology - Law School, University of Western Australia

Professional Bio

Harry is a professor of criminology and director of the Centre for Indigenous Peoples and Community Justice at the Law School, University of Western Australia. He specialises in Indigenous people and criminal justice, young people and crime, family and domestic violence, crime prevention, diversionary strategies, policing and restorative justice. He has years of experience in conducting high-level research with Aboriginal people across Australia (including urban, rural and remote locations). He has increasingly argued for a “decolonising” approach which builds partnerships between Indigenous communities and mainstream structures. Harry has led two ANROWS-funded projects, “Innovative models in reducing family violence” and “The role of Aboriginal Law and Culture in preventing family violence”. His latest book, with Thalia Anthony, Decolonising Criminology: Imagining Justice in a Postcolonial World (Palgrave, 2019), calls for a radical shift in the way we view the role of the justice system in Australia and calls for an approach that foregrounds the colonial experience and intergenerational trauma in family violence.
