Research projects

My research interests include organisation of education and its consequences for those involved in education. My PhD research concerns the organisation of Swedish Municipal Adult Education through public procurement and what this means for teachers’ work. The project explores questions such as “How is national education outsourcing policy being enacted by different municipalities?”, "How do teachers navigate points of tension that arise from this organisation?" and "How are teachers construed and valuated in procurement documents?"
