How we interact with society

Researchers at the Department of Sociology interact with the community in several ways. The department researchers participate in public inquiries, and provides expert contributions, as well as collaborate with various agencies on specific projects and in the longer term.

One example is that researchers often review reports written, for example, at the National Social Insurance Office (Försäkringskassan), Statistics Sweden and the National Board of Health and Welfare.

The researchers also informs about their research in books and popular science magazines, such as Statistics Sweden's magazine Welfare.

The researchers of the Department also participate as members, experts and experts on boards, councils, committees and working groups. Some examples are the panels at the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working life and Welfare, the Swedish foundation for humanities and social sciences and the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet). They also participiate in various program councils at Statistics Sweden (SCB) and the Social Insurance Agency.


Some researchers also share their time between the Department of Sociology and other workplaces, such as various government agencies and research institutes.
