The Stockholm Criminology Symposium: Call for Presentations

More news about the topic

The Symposium is annually organized by the Swedish National Council of Crime Prevention on behalf of the Swedish Government. The Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå, Brottsförebyggande rådet) — an agency under the Ministry of Justice — is a centre for research and development within the judicial system.

The 2024 symposium is being arranged under the overall title Criminal justice with broad public support, and will include one general and two more specific themes. The first and most central specific theme of the symposium is Trust and legitimacy in the work to combat crime, which relates to the award of the 2024 Stockholm Prize in Criminology to Professor Gary LaFree, University of Maryland, USA and Tom R. Tyler, Yale University, USA.

The second specific theme, When children commit crime, directs its focus on new knowledge regarding the crime children commit, judicial and social reactions to children’s offending, and preventing this offending.

The third, more general, theme is Contemporary criminology, which provides an opportunity for presentations from all areas of the broader field of criminology. Participants are invited to submit panel session presentations within three themes: 1. Trust and legitimacy in the work to combat crime 2. When children commit crime 3. Contemporary criminology.

All abstracts must be submitted by February 29, 2024.
The symposium will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, June 10-12, 2024.
