My research and teaching mainly concerns comparative politics, public administration and political economy. I am particularly interested in the functioning of democracy, how power is organised, why institutions work well or badly and the integrity of public administration. British politics is another interest. The main part of my publications concern corruption, understanding risks and what promotes and hinders corruption, and how to measure corruption (see below). I teach courses in comparative politics, political economy, public administration and political corruption and supervise undergraduate and masters dissertations. I am also supervisor of doctoral students. I have also been involved in anti-corruption consultancy and giving talks and lectures. I started to work at Linnaeus University in October 2006. Before that, during 2004-2006, I was a Research Fellow at the School of Politics & International Relations, University of Nottingham. I defended my PhD thesis at Umeå University (2002). My master’s degree in economics is from Lund University (1994).
