The Stockholm Criminology Symposium

The Stockholm Criminology Symposium

The Symposium which was held for the first time in 2006, is organized by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå, Brottsförebyggande rådet), which is an agency under the Ministry of Justice.

The primary purpose of the Symposium is to create an environment where international criminologists, policy makers, practitioners and others engaged in criminal policy matters can take part of the latest research findings of importance for crime policy.

Following the research interest of the prize winner, the main symposium theme will be Principled and equitable law enforcement. In 2023 they will also have a second theme which is Evidence-based knowledge against violent extremism. As usual, there is also a general theme, Contemporary criminology, which covers a broad range of subjects in the area of criminology and for which this year, special attention will be paid within this theme to contributions focused on environmental criminology.
