Tove Nyberg (Stockholm University)
Tove Nyberg is a fourth-year PhD student at the Department of Criminology at Stockholm University, Sweden. Her current research is on justice for children who have been involved with organised armed violence in Colombia. She specifically studies professionals within the transitional and child (criminal) justice systems and their experiences and reflections on children who have been involved with different types of organised armed groups. Theoretical concepts of victims and victim-offender overlaps as well as communities of practice and system dynamics within justice systems are unpacked through analysis of interviews, observations and documents to understand how some of the children involved with armed groups are labelled as victims and others as offenders.  Tove has an MA degree in socio-legal and criminological research from University of Nottingham (2016) and a law degree from Stockholm University (2014)
