Research

I’m currently at the final stages of my doctoral dissertation research, where I have explored the roles of civil society organizations in criminal justice with comparative perspective. In October 2018 I also started working as senior researcher in a research project which examines the use of research knowledge in making of Finnish criminal policy related law-drafting projects between 1991 and 2017. This research is funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation.
