Dr Ian Warren is a Senior Lecturer in Criminology and member of the Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation at Deakin University, Geelong, Australia. His research examines the relationship between  technology and surveillance in contemporary Australian and international crime control debates. He has written widely on socio-legal responses to various crime problems including illicit drug trafficking, the regulation of the private security industry, the use of surveillance technologies to promote order in the night-time economies of Australia and the comparative dimensions of privacy regulation in Australia and Canada. His research also examines the limits of contemporary global justice measures to deal with comparative and transnational crime problems. His research on the relationship between surveillance and criminal justice questions the widespread acceptance of technology to prevent and control crime, while overlooking significant issues associated with information privacy, security, law enforcement accountability and the effectiveness of these approaches in meeting their stated objectives.
