“Dear colleagues and friends,
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of HEUNI’s former director, Mr. Kauko Aromaa on 18 January, 2019. Kauko’s passing was unexpected and sudden, and we are all in shock.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

Kauko was an integral figure in Finnish, Nordic, European and international crime prevention and criminal justice arenas. He was the director of HEUNI 2000-2011, and developed in particular HEUNI’s research capacity, and expanded our participation in international projects. Despite retirement, he tirelessly continued to engage in the field. Kauko was always ready to discuss and exchange ideas. His energetic, lively and knowledgeable presence and passion for art and societal debate will be deeply missed and remembered.”

On behalf of everyone at HEUNI,
