Research

I am currently heading a research project on intimate partner violence, with particular emphasis on gender, equality and power relations, funded by the Ministry of Justice and Public Security. Other major topics of my research have been changes over time and generations in men’s work–family practices and gender relations, and migration and social change.​​ My research has also spanned a number of other topics, including policy analysis, the welfare state, theories of social justice, human rights, financial institutions from the perspective of social movement theory and neo-institutionalism, feminist economics, working life, public sector reform and management, and the material, institutional and symbolic production and contemporary use of cultural heritage. Common themes in my research are a preoccupation with the ways in which practices are shaped by and shape contexts, the social production of knowledge, ideologies and policies, and the dynamics between knowledge production, ideologies, policies and practices.​
