Petter Gottschalk is a professor in the Department of Leadership and Organization at BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo, Norway. He was educated in Germany, the United States and the United Kingdom. Dr. Gottschalk has been managing director of several companies including ABB Datacables. He has published extensively on knowledge management, investigations, law enforcement, white-collar crime and defense lawyers. Dr Stanislas' areas of interest are policing and criminal justice matters in a changing world, with a special interest in policing in the developing and postcolonial countries.

Dr Stanislas is especially interested in how policing and criminal justice institutions are responding to issues related to human rights and sexuality and other global changes taking place, such as demands for more democratic forms of policing. Dr Stanislas also has a special interest in how British policing is responding to similar changes, and he is experienced in the area of police organisational development and the role of training and education in that process. Another area of concern for Dr Stanislas is how marginalized communities respond to policing and issues around crime and the type of strategies they utilise. This was the basis of his PhD thesis, which examined the use of non-state security and policing strategies.
