I am professor of human rights studies. My academic background is in philosophy (PhD practical philosophy) and law. I teach human rights theory and methods and supervise Master- and PhD-students.

My research is in political philosophy and its early modern history, with emphasis on freedom and rights. I am interested in how moral concepts figure in political theory and how political values shape and are shaped by institutions and social change.

One of my research interests is the 18th-century feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. My book on her political philosophy is available in English (Mary Wollstonecraft and Feminist Republicanism) and in Swedish (Mary Wollstonecraft, feminismen och frihetens förutsättningar).

I also work on rights and socioeconomic inequality. My latest project in that field – Cash – concerns how the transition to a cashless economy impacts economically and socially vulnerable groups. The project is funded by Formas, the Swedish research council for sustainable development.
