About me

Aron Schoug is a PhD student in education with an interest in civil society, voluntary work, democracy and group communication. He combines these fields in his research on cooperation and organizational processes in nonprofit organizations. His main research interest is about understanding how leadership and coordination take place in a context where people engage in their spare time. Members' interaction is related to various types of organizational structures in civil society, eg bureaucracy or network structures. The research also aims to say something about the significance of civil society for democracy and the role of civil society organizations as schools of democracy.

Aron is a trained Steiner school teacher and holds a master's degree in education from Stockholm University. He is a member of the organizational pedagogics research group at the Department of Education. In addition to his research, he teaches at the Human Resource Management Program at Stockholm University, where he is responsible for the course communication in the group as well as supervising bachelor theses. In previous research projects, Aron has studied voluntary engagement from a motivational perspective and regularly giving lectures in nonprofit organizations who want to develop the engagement of their members.
