Om mig

I am professor of sociology at the Swedish Instituet of Social Research (SOFI), Stockholm University. My area of expertice is in social policy, well-being, and comparative analysis. I am heading the Social Policy Unit at SOFI, and I am the principal director of the SPIN-database (www.sofi.su.se/spin), and various other projects (see below).

I am one of the co-chairs of the European Social Policy Analysis Network (ESPAnet), and board member of the Foundation for International Studies of Social Security (FISS). I chair the Swedish Sociological Association, and I am one of two research directors of the international InGRID project (FP7 and Horizon 2020).

CURRENT PROJECTS

The SPIN Database: An Update and Expansion

Financing: 9 000 000 SEK, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond

Period: 2019-2021

The purpose of this project is to maintain, update and substantially expand the internationally renowned Social Policy Indicators (SPIN) Database (www.sofi.su.se/spin). The new improved SPIN database will continue to offer unique possibilities for state-of-the-art analyses on the causes and consequences of welfare states and social policy that are difficult to obtain elsewhere. The SPIN database includes a wide range of institutional indicators on the financing, eligibility criteria and quality of various types of social policy programs. The SPIN database has now reached the stage of development where new resources are required to continue pioneer welfare state analyses, improve dissemination of data and contribute to new breakthroughs in research. We have successfully finished a number of pilot projects on the conceptualization and measurement of social policy in areas where new data are urgently needed. In the continued development of the SPIN database, we will not only update existing data. Based on our pilot projects, we will construct new SPIN data models. We will also initiate new pilot projects to continue push further the frontiers of welfare state research, as well as improve the web interface and dissemination of SPIN. No Swedish government agency are responsible for collecting similar comparative data as in SPIN. SPIN does not include any ethically sensitive individual level data.

Adequate housing conditions: the role of housing benefits in Sweden and abroad

Financing: 4 630 000 SEK, the Swedish Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (FORTE)

Period: 2019-2021

Housing benefits exist in nearly all European countries. They are usually put in place to reduce housing costs and improve housing conditions of low-income households. Despite the prominence of housing benefits in governments’ anti-poverty policies, inadequate housing conditions, such as overcrowding and insufficiencies in basic facilities, continue to be a widespread problem also in Sweden. Are housing benefits simply too low to effectively combat inadequate forms of housing, or are the processes leading to poor housing conditions more complex? The purpose of this project is to assess the role of housing benefits for inadequate housing conditions. We assume that the role and functioning of housing benefits cannot be understood in isolation, but needs to be analyzed in conjunction with rental market regulations and more general social policy structures. The working hypothesis is that integrated rental systems and comprehensive forms of income protection in periods of work incapacity, improve the possibilities of housing benefits to combat poor housing conditions. Recent developments in Sweden illustrate the need to analyze such interplays in policy. Although Sweden has one of the most generous housing benefits in Europe, the share of households reporting problems with their housing conditions has increased. Using comparative micro-level survey data for a large number of European countries together with new macrolevel data on housing benefits, while integrating quantitative and qualitative analyses, the proposed project will make an important contribution to existing knowledge.

Political and distributive consequences of the de-carbonized welfare state

Financing: 5 992 000 SEK, the Swedish Research Council (VR)

Period: 2021-2024

Many environmental policies currently being enacted to slow climate change have distributive - and thereby political implications. Policy instruments such as carbon taxes and fees tend to be regressive, as they weigh more heavily on the poor who spend a larger share of their budgets on energy. Without a redistributive social agenda, countries may be caught in a vicious cycle of green policy adjustments, increased inequalities, and an erosion of political support. This project analyzes how distributional effects of de-carbonizing policies are moderated by redistributive social policies, and how this in turn affects the support of incumbent governments. We develop a new methodology forestimating individual-level distributional effects of environmental policies in countries with different social policy systems, and a novel analytical approach for estimating the effects on political support using a combination of policy and poll-of-polls data. The project generates new knowledge on how countries can develop socially sustainable de-carbonizing policies.
