- Non-Pecuniary Damages to Victims of Crime
- Online Defamation
- Theory of Jurisprudence and Social Science
Karl Dahlstrand's research and teaching are about how social scientific knowledge is given relevance in the application of law, legislation, and the legal profession in general. The research concerns victimological aspects of how society and the law treat victims of crime, mainly through the type of compensation for violations that are intended to act restoratively for victims of crime. How violations are appraised legally becomes a meeting between the law and the social with practical and theoretical significance.
