Public Services and the Modern State
Ben Ansell and I are writing a book about the political history of public services such as policing, schooling, and public health, building on our previous work on the origins of national education systems. During the period 2017–2022, I am also the principal investigator of a project, funded by the Swedish Research Council, on public services in comparative and historical perspective. Moreover, I am a member of the team behind the research program STANCE, State-Making and the Origins of Global Order in the Long Nineteenth Century and Beyond, which is funded by the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation, and a member of the team behind the project Immigration Policy and the Welfare State in Comparative and Historical Perspective.
