My research interest lies within the field of sustainability studies, proterty rights, company law, and discrimination law. 

Shortly, my thesis concerns property issues and the field of gender equality. The overall aim is to examine the legal possibilities and obstacles that arise in the conflict of interest between - property rights and gender equality. This is done by analyzing and comparing three regulatory models - a mandatory, an encouraging and a business-driven model, to achieve gender balanced boards in PLCs.

I write my thesis in Swedish, but don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions.
