Bodil Elise Ravneberg

Field of work

I am a political scientist working with how services are organised and facilitated for citizens. Important issues in ny research are policy development, cooperation and coordination for social particiapation, diversity and integration. My work consist of analyses of different policy areas, often in a historical perspective, within education, welfare and public health issues. Development and changes within welfare- and care ideologies, history of the school system, assistive technological solutions, professionalisation processes, organisation perspectives and changes in how receivers of services are viewed have been central. Theoretical I have worked with profession theory, organisation theory, historical sociology, democracy theory, school and educational history, social capital as well as political and social participation and user involvement. Methodologically I have mostly worke with qualitative techniques for data collection, but also quantitatively to some extent.
