3.9 million from RJ for Business as Usual

Isabel Schoultz at the Sociology of Law Department has together with Janne Flyghed at the Department of Criminology at Stockholm University been granted 3.9 million SEK from Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) for the project Business as usual. Corporate defense strategies against accusations of crime.

The project aims to study what strategies companies apply when defending themselves against accusations of crimes and how these strategies can enable businesses to commit crimes.

By studying how companies frame their defense in various venues and at various times, the ambition is to provide knowledge about how companies reason when it comes to the limits for their responsibility for human rights and the environment.

Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) is an independent foundation with the goal of promoting and supporting research in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
