The Stockholm Criminology Symposium

New venue

Münchenbryggeriet by day

In 2023 the Stockholm Criminology Symposium will change venue. Still in central Stockholm, the Symposium will be held at Münchenbryggeriet, one of the most characteristic elements in the skyline of Stockholm and with views over the beautiful Stockholm City Hall.

The 2023 Prize winner

Beatriz Magaloni (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.

Call for presentations deadline, February 28

Following the research interest of the prize winner, the main symposium theme will be Principled and equitable law enforcement. In 2023 we will also have a second theme which is Evidence-based knowledge against violent extremism. As usual, there is also a general theme, Contemporary criminology, which covers a broad range of subjects in the area of criminology and for which this year, special attention will be paid within this theme to contributions focused on environmental criminology.

All abstracts must be submitted by February 28, 2023.

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.
