Our social work research encompasses social problems, social processes and work of a primarily social form. The research ranges widely, from issues of everyday life and encounters in social work to publicly funded efforts as a welfare strategy. People of all ages, from children and youth to older adults in later phases of life, are at the core.
Our intent is that the knowledge we generate in social work will support change, quality improvement and operational development in social work.
Graduate study in social work takes place within the framework of the Research School of Health and Welfare.
Graduate students in social work may also want to participate in the Swedish Research School in Social Work.
Research in social work is well-connected to national and international networks. The School of Health and Welfare coordinates one such research network, called SPnet.
