JPS has an exciting blend of subjects in the form of criminology, law/legal science, psychology and social work which facilitates interaction and collaboration between our researchers beyond subject boundaries. We are host to a number of strong research environments with prominent researchers who conduct research on human development and life conditions, about society's boundaries and conditions to creating a good and safe society. From different perspectives we study the individual, the family, groups, laws and society.
The research is conducted within our subjects of law, psychology, social work and criminology, but also within multidisciplinary research environments, some are both national and internationally leading. Our research is conducted in close cooperation with the surrounding community. It is important for us that research is important and reaches out to society!
