Dr Siv Rebekka Runhovde is a researcher in the Department of Research at the Norwegian Police University College in Oslo. Siv holds a PhD in Criminology from the University of Oslo and has more than ten years of experience in researching complex and under-addressed crime areas.
Since 2011, her work has focused on researching the policing of transnational organised wildlife crime, focusing on Uganda and Norway, and since 2018, the theft and trafficking of art and antiquities, focusing on Norway. Both projects have included conducting interviews with law enforcement professionals and other experts in the field and she has employed a theoretical framework that includes perspectives on discourse, organizations, professional discretion and opportunity-based theories on crime.
