    Comparing Employment Trajectories before and after First Imprisonment in Four Nordic Countries2017Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 57, nr 4, s. 828-847Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Employment plays a crucial role in the re-entry process and in reducing recidivism among offenders released from prison. But at the same time, imprisonment is generally regarded as harmful to post-release employment prospects. Little is known, however, about whether or not offenders’ employment trajectories before and after imprisonment are similar across countries. As a first step towards filling this gap in research, this paper provides evidence on employment trajectories before and after imprisonment in four Nordic welfare states: Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Using data gathered from administrative records on incarcerated offenders, the analysis focuses on individuals imprisoned for the first time and who served a prison sentence less than one year in length. Results show that although employment trajectories develop in mostly similar ways before and after imprisonment across these countries, important differences exist.

    This is Denmark: Prison Islands and the Detention of Immigrants2021Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 61, nr 6, s. 1540-1556Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    According to mainstream criminology, Nordic societies with their generous welfare states are supposed to moderate, if not restrict, penal powers. In the case of migration, we see the opposite pattern. In Denmark, we see extended use of penal institutions and penal harms to contain and remove unwanted populations from the region, including proposals for a prison island and the confinement of migrants in 19th century prisons. To make sense of these developments and interpret its social meaning, we unpack the logic of the punishment–welfare nexus and Nordic exceptionalism. We find that Denmark expands penal power to regulate non-citizens, deter migration and uphold national interests. These repressive practices are not exceptions to the rule but rather illustrate the exclusionary edge and very nature of the penal regimes in Denmark, a Nordic welfare state.

    Locked Up and Locked Out? The Impact of Imprisonment on Labour Market Attachment2018Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 58, nr 5, s. 1044-1065Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates what effects a first prison sentence has on labour market inclusion, both by comparing those sentenced to prison to the population as a whole, and by comparing groups of convicted offenders. We utilize longitudinal data on criminal sanctions and earnings available for two complete birth cohorts of Swedish men (N = 107,337). These data enable us to compare the labour market attachment of prison inmates both before and after imprisonment. Results from propensity score matching show small negative effects of imprisonment on post-release labour market attachment. Moreover, we find no effect for those without pre-sentence labour market attachment. Thus, the negative effects are restricted to those with some labour market attachment before imprisonment.

    The life course of young male and female offenders: Stability or change between different birth cohorts?2014Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 54, nr 3, s. 393-410Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Individuals’ life chances are shaped by the times and events that they experience. This emphasizes the need for studies that focus on staggered birth cohorts. The article presents a new longitudi-nal data set that includes three complete Swedish birth cohorts, born in 1965, 1975 and 1985. Comparisons between the different birth cohorts show how offending distributions among young offenders, as well as their socio-demographic backgrounds and life chances, have developed over time. The analyses of stability and change presented in the study may serve as a point of departure for more informed discussions of the significance of societal changes for the criminality and life chances of male and female offenders.

    Using 'Turning Points' to Understand Processes of Change In Offending: Notes from a Swedish Study on Life Courses and Crime2012Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 52, nr 1, s. 1-16Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Processes of within-individual change in offending and desistance from crime can be very complex, often involving multiple, context-specific processes. But even in a generous reading of much research on turning points, while this is theoretically stated or inferred, it is less often shown or illustrated in empirical cases. I explore processes of change in offending with the help of the concept of ‘turning points’, through life story interviews conducted in the Stockholm Project, trying to make use of the possibilities inherent in qualitative inquiry. I show how life course processes and the turning points that emerge within them are often interdependent on each other, emerging in very context-specific circumstances, and need to be studied and understood and such. Future research areas are suggested.

    A Life-Course Analysis of Engagement in Violent Extremist Groups2020Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 60, nr 1, s. 74-92Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this exploratory study, individuals’ processes of engagement in violent extremist groups are analysed by drawing from criminological life-course theory and narrative-based understandings of crime. Based on interviews with individuals who have participated in violent extremism, it is suggested that the process of engagement consists of three steps: (1) a weakening of informal social controls, followed by (2) an interaction with individuals in proximity to the group and (3) a stage of meaning-making in relation to the group and one’s identity, resulting in an individual’s willingness and capacity to engaging in the group’s activities, including violence. In future theorizing about processes of engagement in violent extremism, the meanings of age, and the life-course stages of late adolescence and emerging adulthood in particular, should be given analytic attention.

    Juvenile Violence as a Social Problem: Trends, Media Attention and Societal Response2001Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 41, s. 639-655Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article challenges the view that juvenile violence is rapidly increasing in Western Europe. The studies portraying such an increase are far too reliant on official crime statistics. In countries where alternative data are available, these often present a different picture. It is thus possible that the way violence is viewed in society and the subsequent response to juvenile offending have changed, leading to a deviancy amplification spiral. This hypothesis is examined using results from two Swedish studies, the one on changes in the media treatment of violence, the other on changes in schools’ reaction to violence. The concluding discussion highlights the role of the media as actor and arena respectively in the creation of this altered reaction.

    Trends in violence in Scandinavia according to different indicators2006Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 46, nr 3, s. 486-504Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In Scandinavia as in many other parts of Europe, violence constitutes an important focus for the public and political debate on crime. Much of what is said in the public debate, and done in the field of criminal policy, stems from a perception that violence is on the increase. This paper presents a new social indicator of trends in violence – Swedish hospital admissions resulting from acts of violence – and evaluates this measure in the light of more traditional indicators of violence – crime statistics, victim surveys and homicide statistics. The hospital data comprise 90,000 admissions from the years 1974-2002. The results show that admissions caused by violence are more numerous in the 1970s and 1990s and fewer in the 1980s. Nothing in the hospital data indicates an increase in hospital admissions resulting from serious violent incidents over this period. No increase is noted in either fractures or knife and gunshot wounds. Thus the continuous upward trend noted in crime statistics is not verified. Instead the hospital data serve to verify the more stable trends indicated by victim surveys and lethal violence statistics.

    Biased Enforcement Expansion? Sociodemographic Differences in Police Drug Testing for Suspected Narcotics Use 1993-20152022Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 62, nr 5, s. 1213-1232Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1990s, Sweden has witnessed a steady increase in the control measures focused on drug offences. These changes are results of political dynamics once pushed by centre-right parties but thereafter embraced by Social Democrats in government. The article examines the structure of police controls of drug offences and the extent to which these controls have focused on different sociodemographic groups during the period 1995-2015. The study shows that this intensified control of minor drug crimes has resulted in successively larger proportions of youths from deprived areas being forced to provide samples of body fluids. The criminalization of drug use constitutes an example of the significance of crime policy for both crime levels and the composition of the offender population.

    The Darker Side of Equality? The Declining Gender Gap in Crime: Long Term Historical Trends and an Enhanced Analysis of Staggered Birth Cohorts2016Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 56, nr 6, s. 1272-1290Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we elucidate the way the gender gap in crime has changed in Sweden since the mid-19th century. The analysis is directed at theft offences and violent crime. The long historical perspective provides a background to our analysis that focuses on the period since the 1980s. Our principal data are comprised of the registered offending of different birth cohorts. Most of the findings from our study refute the hypothesis that the declining gender gap in crime is due to an increasing number of women committing offences. Instead, the most important driving forces in recent times have been a powerful decline in the number of men convicted of theft crime and a net-widening effect causing a rise in womens’ convictions for violence.

    Exposure to threatening and violent behaviour among single mothers – the significance of lifestyle, neighbourhood and welfare situation2004Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 44, nr 2, s. 168-187Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this article is to study violent victimisation among single mothers. This is mainly achieved by examining variations within the group of single mothers. The study is based on the Annual Survey of Living Conditions conducted by Statistics Sweden. The analysis includes a total of 1,713 single mothers. One of the central issues in this study is to examine the significance of factors related to participation in public entertainment, residential neighbourhood and resource deficiencies at the individual level. One important conclusion from the study is that differences in levels of exposure to violence, both within the group of single mothers and between this group and other women, are primarily related to levels of individual welfare resources.

    ‘Shark in the Fish Tank’: Secrets and Stigma in Relational Desistance from Crime2020Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 60, nr 5, s. 1302-1319Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Processes of desistance from crime are intricate and, aside from concrete non-offending, they involve a change in self-perception and an acceptance and recognition of reform by others. A criminalized lifestyle often comes with significant stigma, which together with segregation or exclusion from conventional society can render the procurement of such acceptance and recognition difficult. This article is based on findings from repeated in-depth interviews with desisting women who are just setting out to approach mainstream society. Focusing on the women’s experiences of managing concealable stigma when (re)turning to conventional society, the analysis advances the understanding of individual reform with a focus on relational aspects of desistance from crime.

    ‘The Anxiety of a Lifetime’—Dealing with Debt in Desistance from Crime2022Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 63, nr 2, s. 461-476Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Debt problems are ubiquitous among people with convictions, yet debts’ implications for processes of desistance from crime remain underexplored. Existing research has primarily focused on ‘punishment debt’. Building on that, this longitudinal study of women in Sweden takes a holistic approach to debts in desistance. Debts are potentially criminogenic forces restricting agency in desistance. However, becoming debt-free and creditworthy is a potent way of approaching mainstream society from a position as ‘excluded other’. Importantly, while some debts are viewed as ‘normal’ and required to live out normative dreams of material prosperity, desisters perceived their debts as the ‘wrong’ type in relation to their view of normalcy. This emphasizes the long road toward the mainstream that desistance processes involve.

    Abstract [en]

    In order to develop an improved understanding of the central criminological relationship between men and violence, this article focuses on men’s gender performances in relation to both violent victimization and offending. By means of discourse analysis based on interviews with male probationers about their own experiences of the victim–offender overlap, this research shows how men relate to a gangster discourse, a developmental discourse, a discourse of vulnerability and a fatherhood discourse. These discourses are characterized by complexity, interdiscursivity and ambivalence, and they rely to a varying extent on bodily performance and on several intersections. The study deepens our understanding of men’s relationship with violence and shows how men perform, renegotiate and even undo gender, within and beyond street cultures.

    Crime as a Price of Inequality?: The Gap in Registered Crime between Childhood Immigrants, Children of Immigrants and Children of Native Swedes2013Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 53, nr 3, s. 456-481Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We examine the gap in registered crime between the children of immigrants and the children of native Swedes. We follow all individuals who completed compulsory schooling during the period 1990-93 in the Stockholm Metropolitan area (N = 63,462) up to their thirties and analyse how family of origin and neighbourhood segregation during adolescence, subsequent to arriving in Sweden, influence the gap in recorded crimes. For males, we are able to explain between half and three-quarters of the gap in crime by reference to parental socio-economic resources and neighbourhood segregation. For females, we can explain even more, sometimes the entire gap. In addition, we tentatively examine the role of co-nationality or culture by comparing the crime rates of randomly chosen pairs of individuals originating from the same country. We find only a small correlation in the crime of individuals who share the same origin, indicating that culture is unlikely to be a strong cause of crime among immigrants.

    Struggles for Regulatory Hardening: Exploring Swedish Politics on Corporate Social Responsibility 2023Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 63, nr 5, s. 1184-1198Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, the idea of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has undergone a shift towards hardening, illustrated by a wave of new mandatory and state-based regulation. This article aims to understand the dynamic behind this shift, by studying struggles for regulatory hardening in the Swedish Parliament. Drawing on a critical theory of contradictions, it proposes an understanding of CSR as a contradictory social formation, which structures the parliamentary struggles. Moreover, it suggests that although the hardening trend could amount to a crisis of the traditional understanding of CSR, politicians remain embedded in a neoliberal logic of regulation. The article ends with a call for research to continue to explore alternative roads towards minimizing corporate harm in the future.

    Gender, Aging and Drug Use: a Post-Structural Approach to the Life Course2015Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 55, nr 2, s. 270-285Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on the ageing process among drug-using women, proceeded on the basis of a critical post-structural approach to the life-course (Ahmed 2006; Halberstam 2005; Holstein and Gubrium 2000; Mattsson 2014). The objective is to provide an alternative perspective on the life course to that which dominates current criminology. This perspective challenges prevailing norms and conceptions regarding the other, and in doing so focuses the analysis on the social mechanisms that lie behind social exclusion, crime and drug use. By means of the retrospective narratives of four women, who describe a rambling journey along crooked paths on the margins of the welfare state, the article reveals the nature of prevailing norms and conceptions regarding ageing, gender and drug use.

    Involvement in Crime, Individual Resources and Structural Constraints: Processes of Cumulative (Dis)Advantage in a Stockholm Birth Cohort2013Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 53, nr 2, s. 297-318Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we study how a central welfare outcome, labour market attachment, develops for different groups defined on the basis of their criminal involvement over the life course. Can we see the pattern of increasing inter-group disparities in labour market attachment that would be predicted by cumulative disadvantage theories? If so, is this a result of the criminal history of individuals or should criminal involvement be seen as one element in a negative life trajectory in a more general sense? And what role do circumstances at the structural level play in such a process? The Swedish economic recession of the 1990s and an examination of how a Stockholm cohort entered, lived through and then exited the unemployment crisis provide an opportunity to study how macro events affect different groups of individuals in a specific socio-historical situation. Our results show that both individual resources and historical events at the structural level are important when it comes to describing individual biographies and events in the life course.

    Abstract [en]

    At the beginning of the 1990s, Sweden found herself in an economic crisis that led to a worsening of living conditions and increases in the level of inequality between different social groups. The object of this article is to describe the levels of victimisation that have been experienced by a number of different social groups. The central focus is directed at the way victimisation is linked to other forms of welfare problem. The analysis focuses on the period 1988-1999, examining both differences in levels of problems experienced, and trends over time, among groups whose level of well-being and financial situation have developed in different directions.

    Hope, trust and segregation in schools: An analysis of contextual effects on violent and general offending2021Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 61, nr 5, s. 1261-1281Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Influenced by the theoretical concepts of ‘Relative deprivation’ and ‘Social cohesion’, this study adds to the relatively limited literature of socio-structural approaches to the school–crime relationship. Multilevel analysis was conducted to explore the independent and interactive effects ofthree distinct features of the school setting—concentrated (dis)advantage, the proportion of students with poor future prospects and teacher-rated social cohesion—in relation to self-reported offending. Using information from three data sources on 4,608 students and 1,056 teachers from 77 lower secondary schools in Stockholm, the results showed that school concentrated (dis)advantageand school-level future prospects were directly related to offending. In addition, cross-level interactionsindicate that the association between student performance and offending differs dependingon school type.

    PLURAL GOVERNMENTALITIES: GOVERNING WELFARE FRAUD IN SWEDEN2021Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 61, nr 3, s. 773-791Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The criminalization of welfare and policing has often been analysed as being indicative of the global rise of a neoliberal political agenda. The current paper examines how governmental power is organized to govern investigators responsible for policing welfare in Sweden. Using empirical illustrations from the Swedish case, it shows how multiple governmental logics are enacted in the context of a broader political will to crack down on welfare fraud. Specifically, it demonstrates how so-called control investigators are tasked to realize a neoconservative agenda. To this end, these investigators are themselves governed using an amalgam of neoliberal and bureaucratic rationalities and technologies. The paper argues that examinations of the articulation of multiple governmental rationalities offer one route for thinking intelligibly about power and criminalization and by extension about the limits of neoliberal rule.

    The Private Policing of Insurance Claims: Power, Profit and Private Justice2018Ingår i: British Journal of Criminology, ISSN 0007-0955, E-ISSN 1464-3529, Vol. 58, nr 2, s. 478-496Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The article examines the ways private policing is organised with regard to profitability. While the literature on private policing has enhanced our understanding of its growth, scope and normative implications, less is known about how ‘hybrid’ policing is conducted to make profit. Informed by 38 qualitative interviews with the seven largest insurance companies in Sweden, the article details how power relations are organised to ensure that the private policing of insurance claims supports and does not pose a threat to profit. Drawing on evidence from the empirical research, a range of issues are discussed, including the relationship between private policing and state power, and the intertwined governance of both claimants and policing actors.
