Personal profile

Personal profile

Ashley Rogers is a Lecturer in Criminology and Criminal Justice. She has a BSC(Hons) in Criminology and Sociology (University of Stirling), MSc in Human Rights and International Politics (University of Glasgow, 2009) and a second MSc in Applied Social Research Methods (University of Stirling, funded by ESRC, 2013).

Ashley completed her ESRC-funded socio-legal PhD in December 2017, which explored the experiences of women victims of violence in Bolivia and the challenges they face when accessing justice. In particular, she focused on the implementation of Law 348 to Guarantee Women a Life Free from Violence. Her other work includes examining the needs of unaccompanied asylum-seeking children from both the perspective of the children themselves (a follow on from a previous role at the Scottish Refugee Council) and from Scottish local authority perspectives. In addition, she has become increasingly interested in environmental issues and recently visited Malawi to investigate access to water and community resilience. This growing interest is particularly in relation to the notion of climate justice, responsibility and redistribution, and in turn, green criminology.

Her teaching emphasises the need to critically consider dominant conceptualisations and discourses of crime, drawing attention to crimes of the powerful including, but not limited to: state-corporate crime; human trafficking; criminalisation of immigration and border policing; hate crime and dismantling the privilege embedded within discourses of 'free speech'; violence against women and girls, and the crime of femicide; environmental crime and green criminology; penal practices and abolitionism. As a largely qualitative research, she also teaches primarily on ethnographic and creative methodologies.
