Christian Ståhl


I am a sociologist involved in research and teaching on working life and welfare systems.


My research focuses on how people relate to work, and how welfare systems are organised to manage illness and unemployment. I have a specific interest in organisational and political aspects. Research projects focus on sickness insurance, work ability assessments, cooperation, and conditions for return to work after work disability.
