This includes leading roles in International Working Group on Green Criminology, the Australia and New Zealand Society of Criminology, International conference organisation, and involvement in a wide range of community and University organisations and committees. Professor White's intellectual impact is also evident in the success of his criminology and sociology textbooks.

Research excellence is not only measured in terms of quantity. It is also evident in the quality and impact of Professor White's various contributions.
For example, Rob White's intellectual contribution to green criminology is varied and substantial, and together his works present a coherent and evolving corpus of work. Rob's research also examines the limitations and contradictions in the existing mechanisms of conflict resolution and harm reduction in relation to environmental crime. For example, his book Environmental Harm: An Eco-Justice Perspective was a unique study that offered a systematic and critical discussion of the nature of environmental harm from an eco-justice perspective.
The book evaluates three interconnected justice-related approaches to environmental harm: environmental justice humans , ecological justice the environment and species justice non-human animals.
White's overarching contributions to green criminology have been foundational and lasting. Importantly, the work of Professor White has been pivotal in reinforcing the critical content of green criminology — to make environmental justice and ecological harm problematic — rather than simply dealing with environmental crime as a matter of 'legality' and subject solely to conventional criminal definitions.
Rob White has consistently been at the forefront of work on the social dynamics pertaining to young people's use of public space, producing a number of signal works for both academia and public policy.
- Blinding Pain, Simple Truth: Changing Your Life Through Buddhist Meditation.
- The Final Act of Living: Reflections of a Longtime Hospice Nurse;
- The Emperors New Clothes - Read It Yourself with Ladybird: Level 1 (Read It Yourself with Ladybird. Level 1. Book Band 4).
- Pioneers of Alienation and 50s Sci-Fi at Thing Street Asylum;
Over his career Professor White has made major contributions to the area of youth studies, including juvenile justice. With co-author Johanna Wyn, he helped set the theoretical context within which youth studies has developed as a distinct field, globally, over the past three decades.it.wucuzacaryly.tk

Rob White has spent over thirty years engaged in the study of youth gangs. This recently culminated in the publication of his book Youth Gangs, Violence and Social Respect: Exploring the dynamics of provocations and punch-ups This is the first book dedicated to Australian youth gangs, exploring the subtleties and nuances of street life for young men and their quest for social respect.
No other Australian scholar has done more research on youth gangs, nor had the professional and policy impact that White has had nationally on these issues. Professor Rob White is an internationally recognised criminologist, a prominent international figure in youth studies and juvenile justice, and an international leader in the new field of 'green criminology'.
Rob White has a 'google scholar' score of h-index 29 and iindex 85 and citations as at 8 April that clearly ranks him in the higher echelons for Criminology and Social Sciences research globally.
His publications are a combination of sole authored and collaborative scholarship, indicative of a track record of independent research and sustained, effective research collaborations nationally and internationally. As well as an extensive international network of research collaborators, Rob White has been building strong links with relevant professional bodies — such as the Australasian Environmental Law Enforcement and Regulators Network, INTERPOL and the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute — so that academic research is translated into relevant policy and practice at the ground level.
An example of Rob's collaborative approach is in the areas of youth studies, juvenile justice and youth work. Professor Rob White has demonstrated the importance of engaging in social science as a form of praxis. His critique of coercive approaches to youth crime prevention and punitive criminal justice responses to youth offending including the hyper-incarceration of Indigenous young people , combined with advocacy of progressive, evidence-based forms of restorative justice and rehabilitation, has placed White at the forefront of innovative justice.
This has not just been a theoretical task, but one in which White has been an active participant, involving close interactions with juvenile justice authorities, departments of justice, police services, local councils, schools and advisory bodies. New initiatives Rob is engaged in that involve international networking and practical application include:. Rob's research focuses on social and ecological justice and encompasses projects at the local through to the international level. Current and recent projects include evaluating School community partnerships; climate change adaptation in the South Pacific, evaluating prison peer support and post release programs; policing hazardous waste disposal; an assessment of Australia's children's courts; and forensic science effectiveness in the criminal justice system.
Rob White's publications are a combination of sole authored and collaborative scholarship, indicative of a track record of independent research and sustained, effective research collaborations nationally and internationally. He has published over 30 books not including revised editions and translations , and over articles and book chapters refereed and professional. His conceptualisation of eco-global criminology, for instance, provided the thematic starting point for a Scandinavian text Eco-global Crimes: Contemporary Problems and Future Challenges edited by R.
Ellefsen, R. Larsen which critically engaged with the notions of ecology and the transnational in assessing the nature of harm. His book Green Criminology is the first ever comprehensive and international student textbook in this sub-field, and reflects Professor White's abiding interest in training the next generations in the concepts and methods of green criminology.
As part of these efforts, White has consistently played a major role in bringing scholars and researchers together from around the world and helping to build a critical mass of green criminologists who are collectively engaged in this vital area of work. He is a facilitator of connections between people, as is particularly evident in foundational edited books in green criminology and the several special issues of journals that he has edited in this area. Rethinking Youth is considered a signal foundation text that explores key concepts such as 'youth', 'adult', 'generation' and 'subculture' from a social scientific viewpoint.
