About me

Signe Svallfors is a doctoral student in sociological demography at the Department of Sociology, Stockholm University. She holds an MA in demography from Stockholm University and a BA in sociology with political science and Spanish as minor subjects from Umeå University.

In her dissertation she quantitatively studies sexual and reproductive health and rights in the Colombian armed conflict, combining region-level historical conflict data with individual-level data on women’s reproductive behaviour and health. The dissertation aims to fill a gap in knowledge about how armed conflict as context affects individual women’s body autonomy, measured as e.g. contraceptive behaviour, fertility intentions, gender-based violence, pregnancy trajectories, and access to reproductive health goods and services.

Signe also works on the project Cohabitation and Family Complexity led by Professor Elizabeth Thomson.
