Legal pluralism and investigations of honour problematics
Johan’s current research projects include social service investigations into honour problematics and the governance of policing issues in Nordic border regions. He recently partook in a Linnaeus University research group that provided the Swedish Police Authority with an analysis of the 2022 Easter riots. Recent publications include “Emotional discourses in the courtroom: women’s empowerment work in honour-related trials” (2022) in Emotions and Society 4(1) and “Heder i rätten” (2022) in CVS Texter om våld 2(2).
Johan Rosquist is a senior lecturer in criminology at Linnaeus University. His primary research fields are the sociology of law and local crime prevention from a governance perspective. He primarily studies the application of socio-legal theory on the meeting between public authorities and citizens or civil society, placing a particular focus on how issues of ethnicity play a part in these meetings. His dissertation, Morality in the legal system: Investigations of honour-related crimes in Sweden 1997-2017 (2020) was awarded Best PhD Thesis by the Swedish Sociological Association.
