Criminology graduate launches debut book in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Law School alumnus Jarrett Blaustein has returned to Edinburgh to launch his debut book Speaking Truths to Power: Policy Ethnography and Police Reform in Bosnia and Herzegovina (OUP).

Dr Blaustein graduated from Edinburgh’s MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice in 2009 and then stayed at the Law School to complete his PhD.

He is currently a Lecturer and in Criminology at Aberystwyth University but will be joining the School of Social Sciences at Monash University in Australia in July. 

His research focuses on socio-political aspects of police development assistance programmes.

The book analyses the effects of globalisation on local policing, drawing on data generated from two ethnographic case studies conducted in 2011 in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
