About Matti Wirehag


Employed at the department of social work as a PhD candidate the autumn of 2015. Graduated from the European program the spring of 2014. Besides my studies I have worked with homelessness and housing issues for about ten years, mostly for Göteborgs kyrkliga stadsmission in Gothenburg. I have apart from this been engaged in Rosengrenska stiftelsen work with the right to healthcare for undocumented migrants since a number of years.

Reserach interests My reserach focuses mainly on housing, housing rights and homelessness in both a Swedish and international perspective. My ongoing thesis is especially interested in the orgniazation and methods used to help homeless persons access housing.
