Personal profile


Ulrika Andersson is Professor of Criminal Law at the Faculty of Law, Lund University, Sweden, working as a teacher and researcher in criminal law and criminal procedural law. Her main research focuses broadly on questions concerning law and power. She is particularly interested in issues of sexuality and gender, in addition to power relations in regard to class and ethnicity.

Together they study demands for justice in relation to the #metoo campaign, in social media and the law. She is also collaborating with Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in Mumbai, India.
