Research

I am doing research on the institutional interaction between the state, the family and (global)markets from a gender,class and ethnicity perspective. Recently I have been working with projects on gender, globalization, citizenship, transnational care and the transformations of the Nordic welfare states.

The Nordic welfare states have a long history of active politicies on gender equality and social welfare for all. Today welfare states "outsources" gender eqaulity conflicts to the global markets and on the national level migration authorities use migration policy to adjust to the needs of the labour market.
