Academic interests

Emma’s academic interests include punishment, imprisonment, desistance, social inequality, and research methodology. She is currently working as a research assistant on MIGMA – Transnationalism from above and below.


Emma has a Master’s degree in criminology from the University of Oslo. Her thesis examines anticipated desistance among Norwegian prisoners, and how welfare deficiencies affect the prisoners’ desistance optimism.
