Areas of interest and current research

The research is mainly focused on norms and norm construction based in a social constructivist perspective, with a particular interest in issues of corporate responsibility for human rights and age-based discrimination or ageism. In 2010 Lisbeth Segerlund published "Making Corporate Social Responsibility A Global Concern: Norm Construction in Globalizing World" at Ashgate publishers as a result of this research.

At present research is focused on norms and agism in relation to how Swedish government agencies work with recruitment in relation to age in view of the changes in the pension system and policies on extended work life. In addition, a study is also conducted on norm change relating to corporate social responsibility and proposals to revise the Swedish Public Procurement Act.


Teaching is mainly conducted on the Swedish Master's Programme in Human Rights.
