About Andreas Liljegren

About Andreas Liljegren; I am a trained social worker and have for several years worked in Gothenburg's social services / drug treatment and have a bachelor's degree in practical philosophy. Nowadays, I am an associate professor in social work and, among other things, the leader of the research network PROG. I also run a channel on Youtube about writing a thesis (under construction).


Research; In terms of research, I am interested in issues in the field of tension between organizational and professional issues, often from a power perspective. More specifically, I have researched phenomena such as collaboration, conflicts in organizations, social committees, how professionals handle congestion and quality monitoring systems such as Open Comparisons. I am also interested in metaphors and their role in knowledge systems such as theories.

Teaching; I teach about research methods at all levels from undergraduate level to national research schools. My teaching also includes questions about organizations and professions in social work from a sociological perspective. Among other things, I have recurring distance courses on organizational issues in social work at master's level (in Swedish). Get in touch if you want to know more.

Unrelated; I have a youtube channel "Breamtime" about bream fishing.
