This COLAB consortium is a partnership of criminal justice related organisations and academic institutions from Norway, UK, Denmark, Switzerland, Finland and the Netherlands.  The consortium was funded by the Marie Curie Sklodowska EU programme of Horizon2020. Much of the work of our consortium was based in Norway and therefore some of our podcast episodes are in Norwegian language.  However, because of the international nature of the COLAB consortium, much of the series is in  English. The Podcast series is funded by the Norwegian Research Council FORSTERK programme and produced by the University of Stavanger (COLAB FORSTERK 2021-2023).
