About Susanne Strand

Dr Strand is an Associate Professor of Criminology. She is the research leader for the Centre of Violence and Society - CVS and the research group Stalking and Partner Violence - SToP. She is also an adjunct at the CFBS - Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia.

She researches risks and risk management of violence in different contexts, with the applied criminology as the academic base. The research is to a large extent conducted in collaboration with practitioners working with victims of violence. Gender is one focus of the studies, meaning both women and men are studied from the perspectives of victims as well as perpetrators. Her research has shown that the use of structured professional judgements while assessing risk of violence is an effective method to use as part of the risk management.

The focus of her current research is risk assessment and risk management concerning intimate partner violence and stalking, where the longitudinal RISKSAM project (2020-2025) aiming to increase risk management for victims, is conducted in collaboration with the police and the social service.

Her area of research is stalking, intimate partner violence, honor based violence, mental health problems, psychopathy and antisocial behavior, police science, risk assessment, risk management and prevention.
