My research primarily concerns crime victims rights and especially victims of hate crime and how the legal actors are working with these issues.
LL.M. 1990, LL.D. 2002, Associate Professor 2009. I have been working at the Department of Law since 2000.
I am course director for the course Legal History, Theory and Method, 20 hp which is part of the sixth semester of the Law Programme. I teach legal history, gender theory and victimology.
I did my dissertation in legal history on conscientious objections in Sweden 1898-1925. Since then, I have done research on victims of homophobic hate crimes and their contacts with the judicial system. I have also been part of the EU-financed research project The Lifecycle of a Hate Crime where the legislation and practice concerning hate crimes were analysed in five different EU-member states. My current research project concerns victims of racism.
I am a member of the International Network of Hate Studies (INHS).
