Research interests

Anders´s research circles around social problems, marginalised groups and their meeting with society. His thesis was about the policing of the drug problem and the development of the Swedish zero-tolerance policy in the drugfield. The Official report of the Swedish Government Young Outsiders (SOU 2003:92) where Anders was secretary, deals with young people not in employment, education, training or practice. In his appointment with the National Board for Youth Affairs he has also been researching young peoples living conditions and access to power. Now he is working within a cooperation project between Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University College and Stockholms social services investigating the dynamics in the group of homeless people living in Stockholm.
