Research

I am professor of Private Law. I am working as a researcher and teacher in Labour Law and Business Law at the faculty of Law, Lund University. My main research areas are Swedish and Nordic Labour Law in a European and globalized perspective. I am especially interested in collective Labour Law and industrial relations. From my viewpoint, Labour Law is important  in a business related perspective.

Professional work

I have worked as a practitioner of Labour Law and have extensive and good connections with Labour Law practitioners. I have been an Inquiry Chair or Expert in several Governmental Inquiries (SOU) and I am one of the 15 Experts in The European Comittee of Social Rights; Council of Europe's regulatory body for the European Social Charter.

Teaching

I take a great interest in teaching at Lund University, and have taught at other Universities in Sweden and abroad.
