My doctoral thesis was an analysis of political discourses on immigration and integration in Norway. Since then I have worked on different projects related to immigration, integration and the welfare state. My main involvement presently is with a nordic historic and comparative project where we study the Nordic welfare state model's encounter with immigration. I am now also starting up a new project where we will analyse the political discourse on sickness absence in Norway.
