Personal profile


My research interests include welfare studies and organization studies. I have a general interest in poststructuralist, postcolonial and feminist perspectives. Within the field of welfare studies, I am interested in social policy discourses on citizen groups, family practices and social problems. I have conducted research on transnational adoption discourses in Swedish social policy, resulting in a dissertation as well as other publications. Within the field of organization studies, I am interested in processes of inclusion and exclusion in organizational cultures. I have been part of a research project on equal opportunities and diversity work, funded by Lund University. My sub study dealt with racialization in Swedish academia.
