I´m Professor of Ethnology at Lund University since 2001, now emerita. My research deals with gender-based violence. The book "Violence and gender. Cultural meanings, functions and consequences (with PhD Gabriella Nilsson) was published in July 2015. During 2016/17 I was tasked as Sweden´s national expert for EIGE (European Institute for Gender Equality) and contributed to a project on improving data collection on intimate partner violence. Currently I´m involved in a project (with Docent Gabriella Nilsson), Combating sexual violence against girls and young women. Developing pragmatic, evidence-based solutions for social change.
I have over a ten years period trained senior researcher and teachers in gender integrated academic leadership - the AKKA programs. All five programs are documented in reports and can be ordered from me.
