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, which will be published by Cambridge University Press in 2020. During the period 2017–2023, I am the principal investigator in a project on public services in comparative and historical perspective that is funded by the Swedish Research Council. In that project, I am working with Ketevan Bolkvadze and Katren M. Rogers. Moreover, I am a member of the team behind the program STANCE, which is funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and led by Jan Teorell (2015–2020), and I am a member of the team behind the project Immigration Policy and the Welfare State in Comparative and Historical Perspective, which is funded by the Swedish Research Council (2018–2021). In that project, I am working with Frida Boräng and Sara Kalm (who is the PI).
