Om mig

Jag är doktorand i sociologi på Institutet för social forskning (SOFI), Stockholms universitet. Mitt forskningsintresse rör främst ojämlika livschanser och social exkludering, med särskilt fokus på unga. Mitt avhandlingsprojekt handlar om hur händelser i de sena tonåren och under övergången till vuxen påverkar olika utfall av vikt för unga vuxnas levnadsförhållanden. Innan jag påbörjade forskarstudier erhöll jag en master i socialt arbete och har flera års erfarenhet som socialarbetare, främst från arbete med unga vuxna med missbruksproblem och utsatta bostadsförhållanden.

    Research has demonstrated that evictions primarily affect vulnerable populations. However, relatively little is known about the consequences eviction has, particularly regarding economic outcomes. Using comprehensive Swedish national register data on evictions in 2009, this study tests two competing hypotheses regarding to what extent an eviction affects subsequent economic hardship for an already disadvantaged group. The degree to which individuals rely on means-tested social assistance is used as an indicator of economic hardship. The cumulative disadvantage perspective predicts that additional strain will compound the economic hardship experienced by the group. In contrast, the disadvantage saturation perspective suggests that additional adversities may not add to economic hardship for disadvantaged individuals. Results from propensity score matching analyses show that, the year immediately after eviction, the degree of social assistance receipt was around 8 percentage points higher for the evicted group than for the matched comparison group. In the following 3 years, the degree of social assistance receipt continued to be significantly higher for those evicted compared to peers. The results lend support to the cumulative disadvantage perspective and suggest that—in the context of preventing evictions—policy measures such as assistance to repay rent arrears would be adequate to prevent further economic hardship.
