Ingrid has worked in development research and education for the past 30 years, first in Africa, and then in South Asia. She currently heads the Center for Community-Based Policing and Post Conflict Police Reform (ICT4COP Center), at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. The Center was established as a follow-up to Horizon 2020 ICT4COPresearch program in post-conflict police reform which studied 12 cases across 4 continents. In the course of the project, Ingrid and her team developed an extensive network of police experts and civil society organizations working on community policing issues which often involved pubic health issues such as gender-based violence and social inclusion of vulnerable groups. She has continued our work in this field, including research, teaching and networking.
