Webinars and e-Seminars

As seminars and meetings move to e-versions, thereby also enabling more interested researchers to participate and follow the seminars, we here compile e-seminars that are open for a bigger public.

Patterns of crime and severe violent victimization across life

Amber L. Beckley, Postdoc and Sanni Kuikka, PhD-student

Research has shown that people who commit crime and people who are victimized are often one and the same. Yet, it remains unclear how these phenomena occur across life. In this study, we provide a first look at victimization data from the project, “Childhood psychosocial and environmental predictors of crime and victimization across life” (funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond). We describe the prevalence and characteristics of people who are exclusively victims, exclusively offenders, and both victims and offenders. We analyze when victimization and offending occur during life. We additionally analyze how childhood problem behavior affects the risks of victimization and offending.
Date: 21 October, 1 PM – 2 PM CET.
