Corruption and unethical conduct in the Nordic police forces

We need more research about police corruption. In October 2021 16 Nordic scholars and practitioners – prosecutors/investigators and representatives from the police – participated in a contact seminar in Oslo to discuss corruption and unethical conduct in the police forces.

The topic is characterized by scarce research and little systematic knowledge, so hopefully, the seminar can be a starting point for developing future research plans and devloping a network of both practitioners and researchers interested in knowledge development within this important topic

The contact seminar was arranged by the Chair of NSfK Council Heidi Mork Lomell in collaboration with professor emerita Liv Finstad
