Main research areas
- Urban planning
- Municipal development planning
- Projects, pilots och experiments in public administration
My research interests concern municipal development planning and new forms of organization in public administration - above all the emergence of experiments, projects and pilots. I also work with issues related to local autonomy and how municipalities are affected by EU membership. I am thus broadly interested in issues concerning power, organization and governance within the framework of changing local policy.
I currently work in four research projects. Two of these are Nordic comparisons that deal with how new forms of organization affect regional and municipal development planning. Here the focus is on the presence of pilots, projects and various forms of "urban experiments" and test beds, primarily within urban mobility.
In addition, I work in a FORTE-funded research project which is related to development work in municipalities - but here the focus is instead on social issues. Here I have, among other things, worked with questions on organization and resistance in relation to social innovations in Swedish municipalities, and how new municipal markets arise around the buying / selling of innovations.
The fourth research project is a Swedish-Norwegian research project where I look at how Swedish municipalities (and municipal autonomy) have been affected by EU membership.
I am also currently a board member of KEFU (Council for Municipal Economic Research and Education) and Urban Arena. Since 2015, I am also an affiliated researcher at K2 (National Center for Public Transport).
I have taught at all levels of courses on Swedish politics and administration, normative theory and critical theory in a broad sense.
