Abstract

The Centre for International Corporate Governance Research (CICGR) at Victoria University in partnership with Crime Prevention Victoria (CPV) received an Australian Research Council grant for the project: Evaluating the Community Governance of Crime Prevention and Community Safety (2002-2004). The authors draw some conclusions that enhance the feasibility of sustaining partnerships. The present paper reviews the achievements of the project over the past three years; reflecting on the research process and products and the partnership process. It identifies some of the challenges involved in working in partnership with government departments (e.g., major policy changes, staff secondments, departmental vs. academic aims) as well as the major barriers to sustaining the partnership (e.g., contract arrangements, funding). Finally it questions whether the initiative is a worthwhile one to maintain and what are the avenues and opportunities towards a sustainable partnership in crime prevention and community safety.
