Field of work

In my doctoral project I am researching how we can talk more about the economic dimension of sustainable development in social studies in school. The economic dimension is understood to consist of topics such as economic security, poverty, inequality, economic growth and critique of growth. A further focus is to understand these economic topics on a societal level and how to start conversations about these issues also with children in lower primary education.
