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."
