Description:
Since 2012 I am an Official Fellow of Nuffield College, Oxford University, but maintain a part-time appointment as Professor of Sociology at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI). A longer description of my research interest, along with my Curriculum Vitae and recent publications, can be found on my Nuffield website.

My main research area is social stratification - including studies of educational inequality, the class structure, social mobility, and ethnic stratification and integration. My interest in intergenerational processes also incorporates the study of children's well-being. Since 1998 I am, together with Michael Tåhlin at SOFI, director of the Swedish Level-of-living Survey, and since 2009 the director of the Swedish CILS4EU study.

På grundval av idén att olika typer av resurser ...
