Current research
International solidarity, discussion and theory concerning the re-vitalisation of labour, European integration and the question of a Core-Europe

Teaching
Graduate course in work science; course in Industrial relations

Cooperation
I have held lectures and seminars at a number of European and North American universities. In later years, I have had the unusual task to present Swedish industrial relations to so different audiences as representatives of the Colombian government and the FARC-guerilla, Nigerian employers and trade unions and Chinese trade unions in Shanghai.
I have had contacts and co-operated with several labour market organisations in Western Sweden, the Nordic countries and internationally.

From 1966 to 1987, together with Stig Boberg, I was editor of a historical program, monthly broadcasted from Göteborg. In addition, I have researched and edited half a dozen of historical and labour relations TV-programs.
