The aim is to take a comprehensive look at the current state of criminal justice policy and research in Scandinavia, and to publish a volume of refereed, high-quality, authoritative review essays of the state-of-the-art of knowledge on selected topics. A similar, successful effort was recently made to prepare such a volume for the Netherlands (Crime and Justice in the Netherlands). The project is funded jointly by the Nordic Council, the Scandinavian Research Council in Criminology, the Swedish National Crime Prevention Council, and the Finnish National Research Institute of Legal Policy. The volume will be published by the University of Chicago Press as part of the series Crime and Justice- A Review of Research.
