Current research project

Within Karins research she is interested in how formal education is perceived by parents and teachers depending on geographical context, in quality of education and if Skipped Generation Households have a different perception of education. 

Karins Research is carried out in rural and urban setting in Iringa region, Tanzania. The region is affected by the ongoing AIDS epidemic in Africa and thus many Skipped Generation Households are found here. Both qualitative and quantitative methods will be used in data collecting. 

The collected data will link to a theoretical framework of rural-urban livelihoods and social justice and capabilities approach.
