    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Sexual violence; victim-survivors; justice; Parity of participation; Nordic law; procedural justice; compensation; space;

    Abstract : The compilation dissertation is shaped by the ambition of Critical Theory, which is to imagine an alternative and emancipatory political reality to the status quo, where people who have been subjected to sexual violence are recognised and enjoy parity of participation in social life. More specifically, it aims to understand how victim-survivors of sexual violence in Iceland perceive, experience, and understand justice; and how, in a Nordic socio-legal context, this knowledge can be used to expand and develop strategies which are capable of meeting the justice interests of victim-survivors within and outside of the criminal justice system.
