Martine S. B. Lie
Martine has broad experience in green criminology. Her PhD Project Large predator management versus the intrinsic value of animals is part of the larger project Criminal justice, wildlife Conservation and animal rights in the Anthropocene (CRIMEANTHROP). She investigates how Norway's management of wolves, brown bears, wolverines and lynx adapts to the Bern Convention, and how it influences the animals. This is done through observation of court cases on large predator hunts and analysis of verdicts from such cases, as well as in-depth interviews with judges, police and NGOs.
Martine teaches on KRIM2960/4960 Green Criminology, and has taught on KRIM2000 Central theoretical perspectives, KRIM2101 and KRIM1300 earlier semesters. She has also supervised a master student in political science.
Martine holds a master's degree in criminology from the University of Oslo. In her master's project she investigated the enforcement and consequences of the Norwegian breed ban on “dangerous dogs”, based on in-depth interviews with police and dog owners. Green criminological perspectives, police research, labelling and risk theory were central in the analysis of the findings.
After graduating, Martine taught seminar groups for bachelor students in criminology, and organised a research seminar at the Department of Criminology and Sociology of Law on animal police units in Nordic countries. She also worked as a political adviser in The Norwegian Animal Protection Alliance (Dyrevernalliansen) for several years.
Martine is leader of the PhD Council of the Faculty of Law 2021, and represents the temporary staff at the faculty in the Faculty Board. She is also deputy representative in the Programme Committee for Research Training (PFF), where she was representative in 2020.
Martine has refereed for the International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy and ACME: An International Journal for Critical Geographies.
