    Danielle Watson is the coordinator of the Pacific Policing Programme at the University of the South Pacific, Fiji. She conducts research on police/civilian relations on the margins with particular interests in hotspot policing, police recruitment and training as well as many other areas specific to policing in developing country contexts. Her research interests are multidisciplinary in scope as she also conducts research geared towards the advancement of tertiary teaching and learning. She is the principal researcher on two ongoing projects ‘Policing Pacific Island Communities’ and ‘Re-Imagining Graduate Supervision at Regional Universities’. She is also the lead author (with Erik Blair) of Reimagining Graduate Supervision in Developing Contexts: A Focus on Regional Universities (2018, Taylor and Francis), and sole author of Police and the Policed: Language and Power Relations on the Margins of the Global South (2018, Palgrave Pivot).
