My research and teaching mainly concerns comparative politics and public administration. 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, public integrity, public administration and decision making in times of crisis (see below). I teach courses in comparative politics, public administration, method, 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).
