Research output: Contribution to specialist publication or newspaperNewspaper article

Abstract

In an earlier article, Inger Enkvist argues that the working conditions for the doctoral students in Sweden are too good since they are employed. We question her arguments and her conclusion. We show that there have not been a decline in the number of doctoral students since the universities started to employ doctoral students. Moreover, we argue that the new policy has improved the doctoral student's possibilities to engage in the research environments at the departments. We also question why it would be a problem when a doctoral student take parental leave, something Enkvist thinks.
