Dr. Jade Lindley, a criminologist, is a Lecturer at the UWA Law School. Her research interests include transnational organized crimes, in particular maritime piracy and illegal fishing, regulation, and international law and she has published across these topics. Most recently, Jade’s research has sought to critically understanding the factors that enable illegal fishing and analyse areas in which improved and innovative regulation opportunity can be used to limit opportunity. Through her research, she keenly seeks to understand and address transnational criminal issues through a holistic lens. Jade previously worked as a Research Analyst at the Australian Institute of Criminology and a researcher in West Australian state government. Jade regularly consults to various arms of the United Nations dealing with crime and in May 2016 was invited address international representatives at the twenty-fifth session of the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in Vienna. Jade was awarded her PhD from the Australian National University, with a period as a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge Institute of Criminology. Her thesis title, ‘Somali Piracy, 2002-2011: The convergence of Routine Activity Theory and Regulatory Pluralism’ was reworked into the Routledge publication Somali Piracy: A Criminal Perspective released in December 2015.
