Crime and society

How have different types of crime evolved in Sweden over time? And how are we to combat crime with a very negative impact on society? Some types of crime involve high socio-economic costs and may also have a negative impact on our democratic system in the long run. Some examples of key values that may suffer or that we may lose as a result of crime include security, trust, freedom, fair competition and the rule of law. Crime and Society is a future research project initiated by SNS seeking to contribute with new knowledge and a foundation for discussions and solutions. The project begins in January 2022 and will run for three years.
