The Scandinavian Research Council for Criminology (NSfK) is pleased to announce our 54th Research Seminar. This year’s seminar will be hosted in Selfoss, Iceland from 6th to 9th of May 2012. The seminar has a capacity to host 100 participants. Accommodation and travelling expences are covered for the 100 attendees that are chosen from among the applicants. We welcome all interested parties to apply for participation in the seminar. Applicants from the Nordic countries giving presentations will be prioritized.
In 2012, The Scandinavian Research Council for Criminology celebrates its 50 year anniversary. In the research seminar, we will try to draw an outline of the major criminological themes of past 50 years while, as we always do on research seminars, allow new research to be presented.
This year΄s main themes, we consider to be representative of different periods in the Nordic criminological research:
Future requirements for criminological research (evidence-based research and practise in criminology)
Welfare society, penalties and legal rights. Penalties against youth in the Nordic welfare state.
Drugs, crime and social control
