My research interests attach to 

1. The transformation of Nordic countries from well developed welfare states with emphatic systems for the delivery of public goods and services on an equal basis to welfare societies and its implications and consequences in relation to education. 

2. A new educational discourse attached to the importance of creativity in education.

3. Youth and social exclusion: identity, learning and territorial stigmatization. The emergence of  post-industrial society and the great diversity of youth and childhood life-conditions (including different conditions for education and  learning) this carries with it.
