Our researcher is following the trial against Telia

The trial against Telia and former employees who are charged with bribery after purchasing 3G licenses in Uzbekistan in 2007 begins this week. Our researcher Isabel Schoultz is in Stockholm's District Court investigating how the company is handling the crisis.

– Simply put, you can say that the actual situation may have triggered crime, as it is difficult to combine high profit goals with doing business in a dictatorship. We can even say that there was an awareness within Teliaasonera that there were major risks, including corruption, by doing business in Uzbekistan, says Isabel Schoultz.

As a researcher in Sociology of Law, she wants to understand how the company defended criminal charges and, in the long run, she wants to understand what triggers companies to violate the law.

To approach the subject, Isabel Schoultz has chosen to study how TeliaSonera, later Telia Company, and some other companies, consciously or unconsciously, use different so-called neutralization techniques when accused of crime.
