About me

Per Binde is Associate Professor of social anthropology and participates in the gambling research program (Regaps) at the University of Stockholm. Binde’s interest in gambling is broad and focused initially on the cultural dimension of gambling and its social contexts. He conducted extensive field studies in Swedish gambling venues and using ethnographic and historical sources as a base, he analyzed the distribution of gambling in the pre-colonial world, the relationships between gambling and socio-economic systems, and between gambling and religion. Binde’s more recent empirical studies have been mainly about problem gambling, for example mutual support societies of problem gamblers, the impact of gambling advertising, and problem gambling in the workplace. He has also analyzed data from population studies and written about regulation issues.
