George L. Kelling is Emeritus Professor at Rutgers and  Northeastern Universities, formerly a Fellow at Harvard University, and a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute.  In 1972, he began work on several large-scale experiments in policing:  the Kansas City Preventive Patrol Experiment and the Newark Foot Patrol Experiment. His most familiar publication is in the Atlantic, “Broken Windows,” with James Q. Wilson.  He also published Fixing Broken Windows: Restoring Order and Reducing Crime in Our Communities, with his wife, Catherine M. Coles. He has regularly consulted with police—most recently with the Milwaukee, Detroit, and New York City Police Departments. Kelling graduated from St. Olaf College (B.A.), the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (M.S.W.), and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Ph.D.).


Fitzgerald Lecture 2016: Presented by Professor Gillian Triggs

Date: 27th September 2016

The Fitzgerald Biennial Lecture Series is a flagship program that honours the contribution to Queensland made by the Hon GE (Tony) Fitzgerald. The first lecture was held on the 20 year anniversary of his landmark report on corruption and good governance in the state. The Fitzgerald Report marks a watershed in Queensland and Australia's political history. In addition to the justice and governance reforms, the report and inquiry served as a catalyst and inspiration to many researchers and practitioners working in these fields. Read more about the Fitzgerald Inquiry and its impact at The Fitzgerald Legacy: Reforming Public Life in Australia and Beyond.
