Current research

In my thesis I studied political conflicts, more specifically the conflicts between the political parties. There are many indications that the political conflicts are not confined to the parliamentary arena, but furthermore that they are relevant for the relationship between politicians and public officials. How the administration is organized can also affect how actors perceive their roles and therefore how the political conflicts are expressed. The overall aim of the thesis was to increase the knowledge of how administrative reforms affects how political conflicts are expressed, and also what significance political conflicts have for the relationship between politicians and public officials.

I am now a researcher within the project "Competetive Democracy in Swedish Local Governments". The overall aim of the project is to study the relationship between, on the one hand, parlimentarism and political contestation and, on the other hand, marketization and structural reforms.
