Lars Andersen of the Rockwool Foundation in Copenhagen, Denmark joins us this month to discuss his research on crime and the consequences of punishment. He and Chris discuss the importance of using quality data to answer questions or reexamine existing knowledge based on poor data; how criminal justice professionals (wardens, guards, parole officers, etc.) engage with his research; and how to design sentencing policies that improve life chances instead of ruining them. Lars Højsgaard Andersen is a senior researcher at the Rockwool Foundation Research Unit in Copenhagen, Denmark. His research interests include how criminal justice contact concentrates within and across generations, how conditions of confinement affect people and the role of family processes for these topics.
