Our research analyzes the significant role of welfare services in society and aims to understand the role of welfare services as a structural feature of the Norwegian welfare model. Accordingly, many of our projects aim to develop an understanding of how different aspects of the welfare society affect and is affected by both its citizens and the producers of welfare services.
Our innovation perspective entails a particular focus on how the welfare society and welfare services are constantly evolving through adaptation and restructuring in order to meet the societal needs of the future. Most of our research is conducted in close collaboration with different stakeholders.
Our Research Group is known to emphasize a bottom-up up perspective and to develop research questions relevant to the many stakeholders of welfare services and social policy.
