Thank you!

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to making the 2017 Stockholm Criminology Symposium a successful and fruitful event. 

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 of Crime Prevention (Brå) on behalf of the Swedish government.

During its twelve 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.


Cutting edge research, provocative policy discussions, and international scholars, the Stockholm Criminology Symposium has always been a superb meeting, capped by the magical awards ceremony and dinner at Stockholm City Hall.

Cathy Spatz Widom, Distinguished Professor at John Jay College

The Stockholm Criminology Symposium is one of the most important and stimulating international criminology meetings of the year. All criminologists should be encouraged to come to the beautiful city of Stockholm for this inspiring meeting.
