Homicides in Denmark from 2012 to 2017
A new report has investigated the number of homicides in Denmark from 2012 to 2017. The report provides information about the types of homicides in Denmark as well as the characteristics of the perpetrators. The report analyzes a total of 150 victims and 156 perpetrators. Among the new findings is a study of the mental states of the perpetrators. The study shows that 24 percent of the perpetrators were covered by section 16 of the Penal Code and were declared mentally ill at the moment of the offense. Additionally, 51 percent of the perpetrators were covered by section 69 of the Penal Code and were declared intellectually disabled or as having a personality disorder.

Loads of interesting news on Nordic criminology in NSfK Newsletter. This, for example, re conditions in Danish prisons, psychiatric hospitals and immigration detention centre.

Council of Europe anti-torture Committee publishes report on Denmark
The Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) criticizes conditions in Danish prisons, psychiatric hospitals and immigration detention centre in a new report. In the report, the CPT express concern over the fact that Danish prisons are overcrowded and the occupancy in several places today is more than 100 percent. Concern is also expressed over the fact that during recent years there has been an increase in the use of solitary confinement in Danish prisons, where inmates are put into solitary confinement for more than 14 days as punishment for breaching regulations. The CPT recommends that Danish legislation be amended so that prisoners can be only put into solitary confinement for a maximum of 14 days. In addition, the CPT points out that the physical conditions of the immigration detention center Ellebæk and Nykøbing Falster Arrest in particular are unacceptable. The CPT recommends that the two facilities are extensively renovated or that they are completely taken out of use. Finally, the CPT criticizes the continued long-term fixation of mentally ill patients admitted to psychiatric wards. In the CPT’s opinion, this may constitute inhumane treatment. The CPT furthermore finds it completely unacceptable that two patients allegedly were fixated for 10 and 13 months respectively.

New Year - New Opportunities
- New DL for NSfK Research Seminar

January 13th at 23:00 CET

Theme for the seminar: "Sexual Violence in the Nordic Countries".

Call for papers:
The number of reported cases of sexual violence remains high and increasing in the Nordic countries, in contrast to the overall decline in crime in the official crime statistics. The Nordic countries were early in explaining sexual violence with lack of gender equality on a societal and individual level, but the current levels of sexual violence and high degree of gender equality challenges this explanation. Sexual violence is also one of the few offences where expanding criminalization and harsher punishments are perceived both as effective and legitimate policy measures in the Nordic countries.

For the 2020 NSfK research seminar, we invite papers that shed light on sexual violence in the Nordic countries, both from a criminological, criminal law and policy perspective. We invite papers on the following topics:

* Prevalence, perpetrators, victims: What do we know about sexual violence in the Nordic countries?

* The Nordic paradox: High level of gender equality, high and increasing level of reported sexual violence.

* Expanding legislation, increased sentences: What legislative challenges do sexual violence represent?

* What methodological and theoretical challenges do sexual violence represent for criminology?

* What challenges do sexual violence represent for police investigation and prosecution?

* (How) Can sexual violence in the Nordic countries be prevented?

In addition to the general theme, presentations concerning other topics are also welcome. Therefore, the seminar is expected to include other research projects.
Nordic PhD-students, researchers and practitioners are encouraged to participate and present their research.

Please find more information at our web page.

Forfatteren Leif Østli i boka Mørkekjøring om Halden på 90-tallet:
“Lyden av Halden. Var ikke det lyden av burning med dekk? Lyden av flasker som knuste? Lyden av damer som gråt?”

På slutten av 1700-tallet i 1796, gir Mary Wollenstonecraft følgende reisebeskrivelse av sitt besøk på Fredriksten festning: "Arriving at Halden, at the siege of which Charles XII lost his life ... Poor Charles! I thought of him with respect."

Forfatteren By beskrev Halden på 1600-tallet som: “Frederikshald kjøpstad var fattig på adspredelser. Høgst kunne den by sine innvånere en og annen henrettelse, en torturering, en brennemerkning, en kaggstrykning, en fantetøs i gapestokk. En kjedelig stad.”

We invite papers that shed light on sexual violence in the Nordic countries; from a criminological, criminal law and policy perspective. We welcome interested PhD-students, researchers and practitioners from the Nordic countries to apply for participation in the seminar.

On Wednesday February 20, 2019, the Police Studies Program at the University of Akureyri will host its second annual Policing and Society Conference. The conference program is available at the conference website (https://www.unak.is/is/samfelagid/frettasafn/frett/radstefnan-loggaesla-og-samfelagid-2019). Participants can register on the conference website and also on site. The conference registration fee is €40 per person and the program, coffee and refreshments are included. The registration fee is waived for presenters. University students attend free of charge. The conference is a venue where Icelandic and international academics and professionals meet and converse about policing in a broad sense. The keynote speakers, Anina Schwarzenbach and Ben Bradford, reflect the theme of this year’s conference: Police-Public Interactions. The conference website includes information on the keynote speakers. Presentations at the conference are in English and Icelandic. As the most visible arm of the criminal justice system, the police are in significant and various contact with the public. Police in the Nordic countries have been quite successful in this regard and enjoy high levels of public trust. Nonetheless, there is still a lot of room for improvement. Moreover, police in the Nordic countries and elsewhere face multi-faceted challenges in terms of police-public interactions in the face of rapid technological advances and a fast changing society. USEFUL INFORMATION: • The conference will be held Wednesday, February 20 in the Miðborg house of the University of Akureyri, specifically in rooms N101 and N102. The conference runs from 9:00 to 16:30. • The conference registration fee is €40 per person and the program, coffee and refreshments are included (pay on the spot when registering). The registration fee is waived for presenters. University students attend free of charge. Conference attendees pay for their own travel and accommodation. • Several airlines fly to Iceland, incl. Icelandair www.icelandair.com; WOW Air www.wowair.com. • The airline Air Iceland Connect flies from Reykjavík to Akureyri, see www.airicelandconnect.com. For more information contact Heiðrún Ósk Ólafsdóttir, the project manager of the police studies program at the University of Akureyri, tel. +354 460 8520 – [email protected].
Our annual Policing and Society Conference will be held on February 20, 2019 at the University of Akureyri. The theme of this year's conference is Police-Public Interactions. We look forward to seeing you there! :) "The police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence" (Sir Robert Peel).
I am so annoyed with myself for not knowing about and missing the seminar. Maybe next time.
Policing and Society Conference February 21, 2018 Theme: Rural Policing Call for Papers The Police Science Program at the University of Akureyri (Iceland) invites abstracts for its “Policing and Society Conference” on Wednesday, February 21, 2018. The conference is a venue where Icelandic and international academics and professionals meet and converse about policing in a broad sense. Professionals and academics who work in fields that involve policing in one form or another are encouraged to submit abstracts that build on their work and/or research. The keynote speakers reflect the theme of this year’s conference: Rural Policing. In general, fewer crimes are committed in rural areas than urban areas and this is reflected in the “rural idyll,” that is, the image of rural societies as orderly, safe, and peaceful. This image, however, does not reflect reality. Academics and laity alike have become more attuned to the specific challenges of rural policing, namely, unreported crimes, long distances, less backup, as well as police officers’ visibility in and involvement with the local community. Moreover, rural communities are not homogeneous. We strongly encourage abstracts that deal with rural policing but we, of course, welcome all contributions that involve policing in one form or another. To reiterate: this conference is a joint venue for academics and professionals to share their research and experience involving policing; learn from one another; and engage with the public. Keynote Speakers: Dr. Anna Souhami, Senior Lecturer in Criminology at the School of Law, University of Edinburgh “Policing at the periphery: understanding police work in the remote Northern islands of Scotland” Dr. Jan Ole Vanebo, Professor at the Norwegian Police University College, Oslo and Senior visiting fellow at the European Institute of Public Administration, Maastricht/Barcelona “How to translate a new policing policy (Policing on site) into improved policing practices?” Useful Information: • The conference will be held Wednesday, February 21 in the Miðborg house of the University of Akureyri. The conference runs from 9:00 to 17:00. • Each presentation is allotted 30 minutes, 20 minutes for the actual presentation and 10 minutes for the subsequent questions and answers session. Abstracts (maximum 250 words) should be submitted via email ([email protected]) no later than January 15. Abstracts should include a title, short description, methods, main results and/or arguments. Include information about academic position, profession, and (if there are more than one contributors) the order of the authors. • The conference registration fee is €40 per person and the program, coffee and refreshments are included (pay on the spot when registering). University students attend the conference free of charge. Conference attendees pay for their own travel and accommodation. • Several airlines fly to Iceland, incl. Icelandair (www.icelandair.com); WOW Air (www.wowair.com). • The airline Air Iceland Connect flies from Reykjavík to Akureyri (see www.airicelandconnect.is).
