James' research interests focus on crimes of the powerful more broadly and environmental harm more specifically. In particular, he is interested in the effectiveness of formal and informal social controls on the behaviour of individuals, states and corporate actors. This includes the more traditional 'top-down' elements, such as law and regulation, but also those deemed 'bottom-up', such as the application of deviancy labels by 'non-elite' groups.
