Please find attached the power point presentations from the NSfK working group meeting "Are Nordic Countries Getting tough on crime?" (Helsinki 1-2 November 2016). The Council Member responsible for the meeting and program was Ms. Anne Alvesalo-Kuusi from Finland.

The aim of the working group was to discuss and compare recent developments in crime control in the Nordic countries: are they getting tougher on crime? Has the ’refugee crisis’ had impact on these developments? Participants were asked to give a 20-30 min presentation addressing one or more of the following questions: what impact has the recent changed social and political context, and the refugee crisis in particular had for criminal policy and crime control? What kinds of reforms, or proposals for such, have been introduced on the level of politics, policy, law-making or enforcement? Who have been the targets of control? Have these actions or initiatives for action been analyzed by researchers?

Please find attached the power point presentations from the NSfK working group meeting "The exploitation of migrant workers and its control in the Nordic countries and beyond" (Helsinki 4-5 October 2016). The Council Member responsible for the meeting and program was Ms. Natalia Ollus from Finland.

The working group focused on how the issue of exploitation of migrant workers, trafficking in human beings for the purpose of forced labour and crimes of employers have been addressed and understood primarily in the Nordic countries, but also in other European settings. The presentations included papers addressing the difficulties of enforcement and legislation in Finland; the Norwegian challenges of seeing trafficking as crimes of the labour market and also as something targeting (asylum-seeking) minors; the lack of focus on labour exploitation in Iceland; and the “invisibility” of labour exploitation targeted at Romanian Roma in Denmark. In addition, presentations introduced labour market intermediaries as contributors to trafficking in the UK; labour exploitation in the agri-food sector in Italy; the invisibility of male victims of trafficking; and the intricate relationships and exploitation among Uzbek migrants in Moscow.

Criminality, incarceration and control in Nordic island societies (ø-samfund) are the themes of a working group aiming at describing how conflicts and crimes are met in the following four island societies: The Faroe Islands, The Åland Islands, Iceland and Greenland. Supported by Scandinavian Research Council for Criminology (NSfK) the working group held its first seminar in The Faroe Island from November 2. to November 6. 2015. The idea of the project was described like this:

“There are large differences between the four Nordic island societies in culture, and also on how they have achieved autonomy/independence and to what extent this is implemented. They have more characteristics in common than they have with the remaining Nordic countries: Small populations that live in secluded island societies, geographically isolated from other countries; rough living conditions and highly dependant on nature forces. In such small societies people are visible to each other, mutual dependent and daily life is subject to strong traditions. To various degrees they fight for autonomy and independence. All these characteristics may influence how these islands societies handle conflicts, how they perceive crimes, and how they work out their local policy on conflicts and crime."
