Introduction
I am conducting a research project on plural policing, focusing on legitimacy and trust in private security (University of Turku). I have worked at Institute of Criminology and Legal Policy (University of Helsinki). Recently, we led a cross-country comparative project about experiences of policing among ethnic minorities. I have a Docent in Criminology (Associate Professor, UTU), experience in teaching in Faculty of Law and in Faculty of Social Sciences. I am an Editor in chief of 'Haaste'.
