Knowledge building: Measures fighting negative social control and forced marriages

This is a research project in two parts: 1) an evaluation following a measure where young people exposed to negative social control, honour based violence and/or forced marriage - have access to mentors who are volunteers. 2) an examination of civil society projects supposed to promote negative social control and forced marriages. We are going to explore how organizations evaluate their measures and how users evaluate them. An important question is whether measures fit the ambitions of authorities, civil society and volunteers.

Ship Global

The primary aim is to study the reconfiguration of employers' production and staffing strategies within a global but regionally concentrated industry from a comparative perspective and to develop a conceptual understanding of how transnational shifts in production and staffing strategies are negotiated inside the EU/EEA. Secondary objectives include: 1) to investigate how national sectoral industrial relations systems influence and are influenced by such changes in transnational production and staffing strategies; 2) to trace how technological innovations influence employer strategies; 3) to assess how EU level Social Dialogue and re-regulations impact the relationship between production and staffing strategies in different corners of the Single Market.

Estimating the prevalence of trafficking in persons in Norway using the Multiple Systems Estimation methodology

The project will test a methodology to estimate the extent of human trafficking in Norway and contribute to better regional and international estimates by participating in the work of the UN Office on Drugs and Organised Crime (UNODC) to develop Multiple Systems Estimation (MSE) in different countries and regions. There are currently no such reliable estimates of human trafficking in Norway and there is a high demand for reliable statistics in this area. MSE is a variant of the capture-recapture method, which UNODC has adapted to data on human trafficking.
