Currently ongoing research
Currently Hansen Löfstrand is conducting research within the following project:

  • Geographies of home-based service interactions at the margins of welfare in Finland and Sweden (Academy of Finland, project leader Kirsi Juhila, University of Tampere, Finland)
  • Body-worn cameras: Implications for the work environment of private security officers (AFA, project leader Cecilia Hansen Löfstrand). In this project, we investigate the use of body-worn cameras in the private security industry from a work environment perspective. The purpose is 1) to understand how the employees perceive and use the cameras and how it affects their work environment and 2) how companies and the industry regulate and handle the use.
