Om 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. Since 2011, I have also been engaged in the Rosengrenska foundations work with the right to healthcare for undocmented migrants. 

Reserach interests My reserach focuses mainly on housing, housing rights and homelessness in both a Swedish and international perspective. My ongoing PhD thesis focuses on the management of local homelessness services. The thesis is a mixed-methods project that explores and maps the organization and methods used by the social servcies to help homeless persons access housing in Sweden.


I teach at bachelor and masters level with a focus on homelessness, housing, poverty and undocumented migrants. I am currently Course coordinator for the course Substinance, poverty and housing given at the department of social work at Gothenburg University.
