Research

I am Dean and Professor in private law, working as a researcher and teacher in labour law at the Faculty of Law at Lund University. My main research areas are Swedish, comparative and EU labour law and industrial relations. I apply legal-dogmatic, comparative and interdisciplinary/social science approaches to labour law research. I have extensive experience of interdisciplinary, international and comparative research cooperation with labour law and industrial relations researchers from leading universities from all parts of the world, and have published widely in monographs, edited volumes and international and national journals. I have been a visiting researcher at inter alia the London School of Economics, the European University Institute and Sydney Law School, and I am the former Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Comparative Labour Law and Industrial Relations.

I am President of the International Labour and Employment Relations Association (ILERA), and will, together with the Swedish branch of ILERA, organise the upcoming 19th ILERA World Congress at Lund University on 21-24 June 2021 on the theme of 'Making and Breaking Boundaries in Work and Employment Relations'.

I am the coordinator of the Norma Research Programme, which includes the Norma Elder Law Research Environment (which is coordinated by Professor Titti Mattsson).

Teaching

I have a great interest in teaching and pedagogical issues, and teach labour law at different levels at the law study programme, especially at the courses Private Law in the Social Dimension and Individual Labour Law. I have guest lectured at universities in Sweden and abroad, and, for example, given a course in international and comparative labour law at Sydney Law School. I also supervise students writing their master theses.

I am currently the main supervisor of Ida Hartel, doctoral student in labour law. I was main supervisor of Andrea Iossa and Niklas Selberg, both LL.D. in labour law in 2017 and assistant supervisor of Annika Berg, LL.D. in labour law in 2008, and Emma Holm, LL.D. in EU law in 2011. I have been opponent and member of the evaluation committee at public defenses of doctoral theses in Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway (in areas such as labour law, EU law, health law, sociology of law and industrial relations).

Outreach

To cooperate with the surrounding society is one of the university’s important tasks, and a way to further develop research and education. Throughout the years I have developed extensive and good contacts with labour law and industrial relations practitioners in Sweden and beyond, such as social partners, judges, lawyers and governmental officials – for example, through my engagement in the International Labour and Employment Relations Association (ILERA) as President of the international association and membership of the Steering Committee of the Swedish association, as well as in the Steering Committee of the Swedish branch of the the International Society for Labour Law and Social Security (ISLLSS) (Arbetsrättsliga föreningen). I have frequently conducted expert work for Swedish and international authorities and organizations, including the European Commission, lectured for social partners, lawyers and judges, in Sweden and in different EU Member States, and been cited by the Court of Justice and the Swedish Labour Court.
