Unit profile


The Norma Research Programme is an interdisciplinary research environment at the Faculty of Law, and a research centre affiliated with the Labour Law Research Network (LLRN). The focus is on the legal regulation of everyday life and social integration at national, EU, and international level, and on labour markets, social welfare, ageing societies, and families. The research environment includes a multitude of activities, such as research in labour law, social welfare law, elder law, and family law, research-based education, PhD-supervision, and external engagement. The research adopts a socio-legal and international, EU/European, and comparative approach, reflected e.g. in funding, publications, theories, methodologies, and research questions, and networks and cooperation. The researchers collaborate in interdisciplinary settings with researchers in areas, such as economics, gerontology, human rights, industrial/employment relations, medicine, political science, social work, and sociology.
