Dr Adrian Cherney is a Senior Lecturer in Criminology, in the School of Social Science at the University of Queensland. Adrian’s early research was in the area of policing and crime prevention. One major focus of his work is on how theories of enhancing cooperation with the police can be put into practice and take account of varying attitudes people and agencies express towards institutional authorities. He has examined this across a range of contexts e.g. illicit drug control, ethnic groups and counter-terrorism. Efforts to break new ground is reflected in a program of research funded by the US Airforce which examines the issue of institutional legitimacy and cooperation with legal authorities in post-conflict societies. The project involves in country data collection in Nepal and Afghanistan. He has secured national competitive grants and was recently awarded an ARC Discovery project to look at community cooperation in counter-terrorism. He is also a CI on an ARC Linkage grant investigating the policy uptake of academic social research, which is the first study of its kind in Australia.
