Personal profile


My research interests mainly concern research on human service organisations, social policy and sociology of knowledge. This is expressed in research on changes in the health care system, how the social welfare system is built up and motivated, and how knowledge and research is used in social work. I work for an integrated social science, which opens both to other disciplines and to various areas of practice.


Between 2000 and 2008 I was heavily involved in faculty management, and served as Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences. In 2008 I became board chairman of the Pufendorf Institute, a multidisciplinary and interfaculty "Institute for Advanced Studies" at Lund University. I was director 2012 -2017, and since January 2018 scientific advisor to the Institute.
