Current research
Working title of PhD thesis: “Security, Flexibility and Mobility in the Labour Market”

The dissertation concerns employees’ perception of their job, employment and income security, and how these perceptions are related to readiness to adjust, or be flexible, to changing circumstances in the labour market. A central aim is to research to what degree security and flexibility respectively contribute to or obstruct mobility in the labour market. The dissertation will be based on quantative material collected as a part of the ongoing research project “Job, Employment and Income Security”, with Tomas Berglund at the Department of Sociology, Gothenburg University as project leader. The project is also a Nordic collaboration project.
