Ben's main research interest is militarism and militarisation in Australia - critical civil/military relations. Of particular interest is crime and the military. His research has assessed the reform of the military justice system and the place of 'military misconduct' in ADF organizational culture. Ben is particularly interested in the cultural relations of civil military relations, and those that shape the military such as race, gender, sexuality, nation and empire. Ben's background in governance and public policy locates these activities in the changing character of key social institutions. He also has written about cultural camouflage. He is interested in how the strategies of physical camouflage can inform social theoretical concerns with discourse and subjectivity.
