Student competition

Help us put an end to firearm-related violence
– compete with your best idea!

Do you have an idea that decision-makers in the Government, the Swedish Parliament and municipalities should know about?

As part of promoting innovative ideas and solutions, we invite college and university students to contribute with your best idea on how we can work against firearm-related violence. This is your chance to kickstart that idea!

How to participate:

Send us a description of your idea on how to best reduce firearm-related violence in Sweden. This will be your entry to the contest, and should contain:

  • What is it about, which actors in society should be involved and what effects would it have? Why do you think you’re your project could work?
  • Your name and contact information where we can reach you.
  • A list of references to cited research, articles etc.

The project may be a maximum of 3 A4 pages (12p). Submit your project by emailing project manager Yi-Wen Chen, You may do this no later than 20th of September, but preferably earlier.

During October, a jury of members of the conference reference group, among others, will read through the entries for the competition and nominate three entries that will be presented during the conference dinner. The students behind the nominated projects will receive an award and participate at the conference for free, including a three-course dinner on the evening of November 3rd. The conference is a chance to make unique contacts with researchers, practitioners, experts and politicians – contacts that can take you on exciting paths!

We look forward to your contribution!

All the best,
