Current research

 

My research deals with welfare politics and family relations. I have studied gender relations and the development of Swedish labour market and family policies. At present, I run the research project The Politics of Parenting Support. The project analyses the historical development of parenting support in Sweden and how it affects current family and gender equality ideals and ambitions. 

I have recently published Transforming Gender and Family Relations. How Active Labour Market Policy Shaped the Dual Earner Model (2017). I am also co-author to the book Ensamma mammor (2017). Information about two of my previous books can be found here: Family Policy Paradoxes and Changing Relations of Welfare.
