The research group works within criminal law, criminal procedure and police and prosecution law. Within these subject areas, the group conducts research at a national, Nordic and international level. The ambition is to develop knowledge that contributes to national practical legal life and to be a leader internationally in criminal law research. A special focus is on developing knowledge at the interface between practice-oriented national research and the international and interdisciplinary research discourse.
The group functions as a forum for professional development through seminars, internationally oriented events, and new research projects. In addition, the group contributes to research-based teaching at a high level through developing professional literature.
