Qualitative research

What: Interviews with victims of crime can help increase our understanding of the consequences and effects of victimization. Expert interviews offer insights into how laws are implemented in practice and what constraints there are.

Why: Qualitative evidence provides deeper and more personalized or detailed accounts of the phenomena under scrutiny.

Methodology: Qualitative thematic interviews, focus groups and document analysis.

HEUNI’s work has resulted in:

The definition of the term “exploitative sham marriage" and a better understanding of its links to human trafficking. Heuni report 82

Improved understanding of labour exploitation as a structural phenomena and as a form of corporate crime. HEUNI report 84
