About Joakim Petersson

Joakim Petersson has a Ph.D. in Health Sciences and is currently working as a lecture in Criminology at the School of Law, Psychology, and Social Work, Örebro University, Sweden. His research is associated with the Stalking and Partner Violence (SToP) research group (Örebro University), the Research Centre on Violence and Society (CVS), and the Center for Criminological And PsychoSocial research (CAPS) – both at Örebro University.

Joakim’s research focuses on partner violent men and their risk for recidivism, how these men can be meaningfully studied from a typology perspective, and how to prevent partner violence. This research is carried out in collaboration with the Swedish police and social services, and the topic of his doctoral thesis was “Identifying risk for recidivism among partner violent men reported to the Swedish police”. He is currently involved in a six-year (2019-2025) research project funded by the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare, to improve the collaboration between the Swedish police and social services in risk management of intimate partner violence and stalking. He has also been involved in previous longitudinal research projects together with the Swedish police on risk assessment of family violence. Joakim has on several occasions served as an international expert on how to prevent partner violence, with a focus on violent men (e.g., at seminars arranged by the EU Commission).

Joakim is also teaching on both undergraduate and graduate levels in Criminology at Örebro University, as well as within the criminology program and other courses in Criminology. More specifically, his teaching mainly consists of courses in scientific methods, intimate partner violence, and victimology. He also supervises bachelor theses in criminology.
