Collaboration

Kate has collaborated with scholars from the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Criminal Law and Criminology in Freiburg on two projects and book projects with scholars from Oxford University.  Currently she has a partnerships with a number of Australian bodies in a linkage grant including the Victorian Sentencing Advisory Council and the ACT Victims of Crime Commissioner.

Current projects

Kate's most recent research seeks to address the significant problem that arises when misconceptions about public opinion lead to costly and ineffective policy responses by governments. This research uses a novel and innovative method to gain a better understanding of the complexities of public perceptions about sentencing and criminal punishment that can in turn inform criminal justice practices and avoid the unnecessary social and economic consequences of harsher sentencing.

Public opinion polls suggest that sentences are too lenient and judges are out of touch leading to pressure for costly punitive sentencing regimes. While alternative research methods (e.g. vignettes) suggest that surveys exaggerate public punitiveness, they can lack credibility with the public and politicians as well as real world validity. Two current ARC projects are using jurors in real cases to inform judgements on sentencing issues. They build on a smaller Criminology Research Council project which used a sample of Tasmanian jurors (see for an overview of findings: http://www.aic.gov.au/publications/current%20series/tandi/401-420/tandi407.html) . The outcomes will be greater insights into the contradictions and complexities of public perceptions about sentencing to inform judicial practice and policy developments, thereby avoiding costly and ineffective policy responses and improving public confidence in the criminal justice system.

Kate has secured over $1 million in competitive research grants over the last 10 years including four ARC grants, three as first named Chief Investigator.  In addition she was first named Chief Investigator on a successful grant from the Criminology Research Council in 2006. She has also received seed funding from the Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration (AIJA) which led to the successful Linkage Grant in 2013 with the AIJA as a linkage partner. She has collaborated with government departments in much of her research. Kate has also successfully applied for Law Foundation funding to provide additional support for a number of projects for the Tasmania Law Reform Institute.

Projects

Using jurors to gauge informed public opinion on sentencing. (2013 - 2015)$400,000
Description
Public opinion polls suggest that sentences are too lenient and judges are out of touch leading to pressure for costly punitive sentencing regimes. While alternative research methods (e.g. vignettes) suggest that surveys exaggerate public punitiveness, they can lack credibility with the public and politicians, as well as real-world validity. This project will use jurors in real cases to inform judgements on sentencing issues. The outcomes will be greater insights into the contradictions and complexities of public perceptions about sentencing to inform judicial practice and policy developments, thereby avoiding costly and ineffective policy responses and improving public confidence in the criminal justice system.

Gauging informed public opinion on sentencing sex offenders: a national study (2013 - 2016)$252,125
Description
The media consistently claim that the public wants tougher sentences for sex offenders and politicians often respond by passing punitive sentencing measures like mandatory penalties. While general public opinion surveys support the claim that sentences are generally too lenient, more sophisticated research suggests that the existence of a punitive public is a myth and is largely the product of the way these surveys are conducted. However, there is a lack of research on how informed members of the public view the seriousness of sex crimes. This national study aims to remedy this lack and assist public policy makers and sentencing judges by using jurors in sex offence trials to explore and compare public preferences across Australia.
