Nationality: Sweden

Year: 2005

Subject Area: Social Sciences

The funding I received from the Wingate Foundation allowed me to continue and complete my doctoral studies as Queen’s University, Belfast.
The restorative justice projects I have researched and the empirical research undertaken have received much local attention, which has made for a challenging and rewarding experience.
In July 2007 I took up a permanent position as a lecturer in Criminology at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, an opportunity I would not have been given if it were not for the doctoral studies undertaken. This new job will allow me to develop my research from Northern Ireland in a different context, and also continue expanding the international application of community-based restorative justice in post-conflict societies, hoping to contribute to the promotion of social justice within crime and justice studies and research.
