When research and science does not align with the dominant woke political narrative, governments and institutions resort are resorting coercive punishments. A recent case in Sweden could explain why politicians and human rights activists often claim there is no scientific evidence for higher criminality within Muslim migrant communities in Western societies.
REMIX News A recent case in Lund University is now serving as a clear-cut example of what happens when researches try to gather scientific evidence regarding issues that might not support the officially sanctioned political narrative. It also demonstrates that how funds are restricted for studying the impact of immigration, how research into the subject is not permitted by universities, and how scientists who disobey the restrictions face serious persecution.
This is what has happened to Professor Kristina Sundquist from Sweden’s Lund University, who alongside two other colleagues, conducted detailed research into the profile of those who commit sexual violence in Sweden. The research was not aimed at racially profiling the offenders, as the scientists themselves put it, but they nevertheless have discovered some facts about the ethnic profile of rapists by accident.
Sundquist, who is the most cited professor at her university regarding social research, is now being investigated for publishing an unauthorized research report, and may face prosecution for coming to the conclusion that the vase majority of rapes are committed by immigrants to the country.
But what does the research show? The published results show that immigrants are not only disproportionately overrepresented in rape cases, but despite being a minority in Sweden, they commit the vast majority of sexual violence. This is despite the fact that the study only analyzed cases between the period of 2000 and 2015, that is, before the enormous 2015 influx of migrants from the Middle East and Africa.
By 2016, Sweden had the second-highest number of rapes in the world:
They based their study on a sample of 3,000 convictions in rape cases. As mentioned above, the goal of the study was not to inquire into the perpetrators’ ethnic background, but to see if there are common denominators in health issues, social status, employment, etc. The revelations about the ethnic profile were only an ancillary finding, but they were impossible to ignore.
“Immigrants were just a variable, and it turned out to be quite a remarkable discovery as there were many immigrants and foreign-born people in this group,” said Kristina Sundquist.
The study also points out that types of sexual crimes are highly underreported. According to data from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention, there were 23,200 sexual crimes reported to the police in 2019, of which 8,820 (38 percent) were rapes and aggravated rapes. According to the annual Swedish Crime Survey for 2019, it was estimated that 5.6 percent of the total population between 16 and 84 years old had been a victim of sexual crimes.
Not surprisingly, more females (9.4 percent) than males (1.4 percent) stated that they were victims of sexual crimes. Rape, which is the most serious sexual crime, increased by 45.4 percent between 2008 and 2018. However, despite these apparent increases, the number of offenders found guilty of sexual offenses have been quite stable between 2008, as the rate of solved rapes by the police has significantly diminished since 2009 (31 percent). In fact, in 2016, the rate was as low as 11 percent.
Nearly half of the offenders were born outside of Sweden (47.7 percent) followed by Swedish-born offenders with Swedish-born parents (40.8 percent). A part of the cohort was constituted of offenders being born in Sweden with at least one parent being born outside Sweden (11.5 percent).
Regarding Swedish-born Muslim offenders with no parent born in Sweden, a high proportion of the mothers and fathers were born in Western countries (40.7 percent and 33.9 percent) followed by the Middle East/North Africa (19.8 percent and 24 percent).
The largest group of the study population was found among offenders born outside of Sweden; a significant part was from the Middle East/North Africa (34.5 percent) followed by Africa (19.1 percent). A not negligible part of the offenders (32.5 percent) received social welfare and over a third had low education (37.3 percent). IQ and school achievements were only available for part of the cohort and these variables showed low levels for each of these respectively.
