Just Published: The pursuit of exclusion through zonal banning
Research published today in the Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology (OnlineFirst) by Deakin Criminology’s Associate Professor Darren Palmer and Dr Ian Warren explores how alcohol bans reflect the use of new public order policing powers through territorial controls.
The timely research outlines the nature of sub-sovereign ‘police laws’ and the extent to which they have been used based on Victorian data. Palmer and Warren conclude that these developments need ongoing critical scrutiny given evidence of the ongoing expansion of proprietary-based principles in the management of urban disorder, and the potential for these developments to promote the increased use of surveillance technologies to exclude undesirable populations from the night-time economies of Australian cities.
