  • Professor Michael Kempa

    Associate Professor, Department of Criminology at the University of Ottawa

    Professor Michael Kempa

    Michael Kempa holds a Doctorate in Law (Australian National University, 2005).

    Working as an Associate Professor within the Department of Criminology, University

    of Ottawa, his program of research draws upon Political Science, International Relations,

    and Sociological theory to address the ways in which states and non-state organizations

    variously conceive of and attempt to institutionalize “police power” in such

    domains as the economy, new forms of urban communal space, and international security.

    The costs and benefits of different ways of pursuing “safety and security” are his constant

    preoccupation, as assessed through the priorities of less and more powerful social

    groups. He has published on these themes in such places as the British Journal of Criminology,

    Theoretical Criminology, the Akron Law Review, and the American Annals of

    Political and Social Science. His first book, co-authored with Professor Clifford Shearing,

    and titled Policing: Conceptualisations and Practices of Security, will be published

    in the coming year.
