28. January 2021 @ 14:15 - 15:45

“The Norwegian NAV-scandal as whodunit: the jurist as culprit, repairman, white knight and spectator”

  • Presentasjon by Kristin Bergtora Sandvik


  • Questions & Discussion
Kristin Bergtora Sandvik (Cand.jur UiO 2002,  S.J.D Harvard Law School 2008)  is Professor of Sociology of Law, Department of Criminology and Sociology of Law, University of Oslo and Research Professor in Humanitarian Studies, PRIO. Sandvik’s research agenda focuses on the development of a political and legal sociology of humanitarianism. Her research combines top-down and bottom-up perspectives on the development, role and place of legal norms, legal categories, legal identities and legal claims-making in conflict and humanitarian action. Sandvik is particularly concerned with soft law and with issues related to legality, legitimacy and accountability. Sandvik has published extensively in highly regarded international journals and is a co-editor of several books: most recently Refugee Resettlement (2018) and UNHCR and the Struggle for Accountability (2016).
