Since 2001 governments have increasingly begun to implement criminal law measures aimed at preventing future harm, which has led to a growing international field of scholarship around the concept of preventive justice. While these measures are most commonly discussed in terms of anti-terror laws they occur in a number of other regulatory settings.

This book examines the costs and benefits of preventive justice across a number of regulatory domains and from a variety of perspectives. In addition to looking at terrorism and organised crime and book also considers the relationship between prevention and the criminal justice system to other regulatory domains, including mental health, drug offences, environmental law, immigration and corruption.

The book draws on a range of case studies from Australia, the UK, the US, Germany and from international law. Contributions to the volume illustrate the ways in which preventive justice traverses multiple borders, whether through regulatory cooperation in law enforcement, through the public/private sector, and how civil and criminal, domestic and international, measures form a complex interrelated regulatory web of prevention. In a broad engagement with the concept of preventive justice the work evaluates the effectiveness of preventive justice measures, and whether it is feasible to regulate prevention.
