My research concerns learning for working life and education. I have studied various efforts and measures which seeks to support unemployed people to become employable. I have studied, among other things, career and job coaching, work placement and empowerment as different ways of supporting vulnerable and unemployed citizens. Furthermore, I examine how competences and the needs of organizations change in relation to the green transformation of working life and society. I investigate how different initiatives relate to various political ambitions such as citizenship rights, equality, social inclusion, and a sustainable working life.
In addition, I am engaged in educational research, focusing, for instance, on the importance of the free school choice and how this affects local politicians’ ambitions to provide citizens with equal education.
LiU Commissioned education
I also work as a project leader at LiU commissioned education, with a focus on the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. As a project leader, together with university staff and other organizations, I develop relevant courses for organizations who want to strengthen their work with lifelong learning.
