In contrast to criminal hackers, non-criminal hackers actively help in securing IT-systems. By examining lifecourse characteristics of non-criminal hackers, as well as situational and cultural factors, this study will show why non-criminal hackers choose to stay on the good side of the law and use their skills in cybersecurity.

Mass atrocities committed during genocides, wars and state repressions have profound consequences on people who directly experience them and on generations to come. This project examines how legacies of mass atrocities transfer across generations, and what role transitional justice mechanisms, such as criminal trials and lustrations/vetting, play in such intergenerational transmission.
Dr Amy Nivette | Utrecht University | Fellow NSCR Evidence-based policing
Can a single contact with the police change how people perceive them? Can a Tweet damage trust in police? Will this also influence someone’s criminal behaviour? This project introduces a novel method of measuring everyday encounters with police, revealing to what extent these experiences influence individual perceptions and criminal behaviours.
