My area of research pertains to European employment policy and the regulation of the Swedish labour market. The research produced has taken both an employer´s and an employee´s perspective, is based on social constructionist theory and takes an emancipatory approach.
I have been invited as a guest researcher at Kent Law School, UK during year 2016.
Guest researcher at Lund University
During year 2014, I was invited as a guest researcher at Lund University. I was a part of the research project Elderly Law at the Faculty of Law.
During 2011 and 2012 I have been working on an EU project entitled Study on precarious work and social rights'. The research project is funded by the European Commission, and the project owner is the Working Lives Research Institute, London Metropolitan University. The project involves 11 countries within the EU, each of which is represented by experts in labour law and the labour market.
I was Sweden's legal expert in the project. The work that is being done includes mapping precarious work in the various member states and identifying regulations in the member states that are creating safer jobs. The project also includes an examination of the possibilities that exist in terms of creating a floor of fundamental social rights for all employees in the country, regardless of their employment relationships.
In May 2008 I defended a thesis entitled Priority Right to Reemployment.
