Research interest
Gunnar Gillberg´s research interest is primarily the so-called individualization process relevant to young adults' identity, ideas, opportunities and constraints in the labor market. Theoretically, the research is rooted in a critical realistic perspective, the relationship between structure and agents are two basic elements. The key research questions are concentrated on the relationship between young adults' beliefs about work and other life and the contextual and structural conditions that enable and limit the life opportunities, flexibility and resource mobilization.

Ongoing research
The starting point for future research, the aim is to understand young adults' lives and to relate these terms to the overall structural changes occurring in society. This approach seems particularly important at a time when self-esteem and the individual's ability to navigate between different choices and options is becoming increasingly crucial for understanding the individual's life chances and employment opportunities. Individualisation and its consequences appears in the tension between increasing demands for self-governance and individual resources that generates a reflexive ability to handle these new demands. Class plays in this context is still a central role, but to understand the inequality that characterizes our society, must be reformulated concept of class and related to a rapidly changing labor market. A central research question is then which individual and social mechanisms that influence young people's life chances and employment opportunities.
