Center for Governance and Management Studies
The center’s research efforts are characterized by an ambition to critically and constructively study, describe and analyse the emergence and development of major corporate and other large-scale organizational practices in society.
Our research develops a theoretical platform rooted in a socio-economic tradition. Researchers at the center aim to uphold a recognized presence in the on-going academic discourses in crucial parts of the governance and management fields. We also strive to be involved in empirical studies that are of significant interest to the actors and corporations/organizations involved, as well as to society at large.
Our empirical studies focus on Swedish and Nordic societies, organizations and settings, however, almost always with a linkage to global arenas and contexts. The kind of research problem addressed decides the methodology used, although qualitative, participative and longitudinal approaches dominate. Read more about the center.
