Description

We conduct research that adopts cultural perspectives on a wide range of issues including public health care, design of public health policy objectives, biomedical research practices and global health. Of particular interest is the Nordic countries’ unique relation to the Nordic welfare model and its historical impact on health care and people’s everyday experiences of living with illness. We explore people’s experiences of living with disease, treatments and non- institutional as well as institutional care, and ethical issues that emerge within public health care and bio-medical research. Our studies and programs are often multi-disciplinary and are conducted with both contemporary and historical perspectives.
