Council

The Nordic Research Council for Criminology (NSfK) was established in 1962 by the Ministries of Justice in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The purpose of the Council is to further criminological research within the member countries and advise the Nordic governments on issues related to criminology. The activities of NSfK are funded by the Nordic Ministries of Justice.

The Council consists of 15 members, three from each Nordic country, nominated by the national Ministries of Justice. The Council awards the annual research grants and is involved in planning and carrying out the different activities of the organization. The Council members can also arrange their own working groups and contact seminars, if they so wish to.

The Chair of the Council rotates every three years between the Nordic countries. The daily administration is carried out by a secretariat located in the country of the Chair.

For the three-year period 2022-2024 professor Heidi Mork Lomell at University of Oslo, Norway, is the Chair.
