Labour Relations and Human Resource Management is not a main field of study but courses can be used as electives for the bachelor’s degree in another main field of study.


Research at Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) is focused on areas where social institutions shape individual living conditions and life chances, institutions related to labour markets, welfare states, families, and gender. The research is organized in three units: Labour Market Economics, Stratification and Level-of-Living and Social Policy. Our researchers are scholars primarily in the fields of economics and sociology.
