About Malgorzata Erikson

Background After first-cycle courses in the Public Administration Program, I started a research career at Kommunforskning i Västsverige (KFi) where, among other things, I assessed health care reforms. In 1999, I obtained my licentiate degree and in 2004, I obtained my Doctorate degree in Public Administration.

Since the 1990s, I have been active as a lecturer at the School of Public Administration and I became a Senior Lecturer in 2007. At the same time, I also became Director of Studies. As Director of Studies, I work with pedagogic leadership and development, and I have the administrative responsibility for our first-cycle courses. For a time, I also stood in as a study councillor. Research My research deals mainly with local political leadership. My interest in this area was kindled when I studied a municipality's development over a longer time perspective. It was then that I saw the importance leading politicians can have for the way a municipality develops. Currently, I am working on the research project "Lokalt politiskt ledarskap i en konstitutionell brytningstid". Teaching During my time as a lecturer, I have taught in many areas, including evaluation, qualitative methods, organisation theory and leadership. I am also a supervisor for master's theses.
