More information about Stephanie Olsohn

Stephanie Olsohn is a PhD Candidate at the  Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology.

She followed the master programs of Psychology and Law at Maastricht University and Victimology and Criminal Justice at Tilburg University. For the former program, she obtained her master’s degree in 2014 and for the latter in 2017. Her theses topics concerned memory accuracy under the influence of counterfactual thinking and the effects of sexual arousal on victim blaming in cases of sexual violence.

Following her masters, she worked as a research assistant at Leuven’s Institute of Criminology (LINC), where she helped conduct several short-term research projects with a main focus on domestic violence.

In May 2020, Stephanie started her PhD trajectory at Leiden Law School and will investigate the role of judges and other (judicial) actors as problem solvers in cases of domestic violence involving minors. This project is part of the sector plan concerning the sub-topic “Duurzame rechtspleging” (sustainable judicial procedures) of the main topic “Conflictoplossende instituties” (problem-solving institutions). It will be conducted under the supervision of prof. dr.mr. M.R. (Mariëlle) Bruning and Prof. dr. mr. M.J.J. (Maarten) Kunst.
