H.M. Queen Silvia will present the 2023 Stockholm Prize in Criminology

We are very proud to announce that H.M. Queen Silvia will present the 2023 Stockholm Prize in Criminology in a ceremony at Stockholm City Hall on June 13.

Beatriz Magaloni, Stanford University, Mexico/USA has been awarded the Stockholm Prize in Criminology 2023. Through her research, mainly from Mexico and Brazil about the relation between poverty and how society is governed, she has demonstrated the risks with legal uncertain methods and violence by the police. Results have contributed to a reform in Mexico for reduced use of torture.

The Stockholm Criminology Symposium is an annual event which attracts some 500 attendees from all over the world.

The Symposium is organized by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå) on behalf of the Swedish government.

During its fourteen year long existence the Symposium has become a true meeting point for resarchers, policy-makers and practitioners who want to learn from the latest research findings of importance for crime policy.
