Personal profile


I am a professor of European Public Policies and Well-being at Roskilde School of Governance, Institute for Social Science and Business, Roskilde University. Here I am also responsible for the PhD programme Public Policy and Administration and co-directs the National Network of Welfare State Researchers.

I am currently a member of two Danish government Commissions:

  1. In the Commission on the "Minimum Income Benefit System", we examine reform possibilities of social assistance, integration benefits, family allowances and housing allowances. The commission was set down in December 2019 and is to publish its reform proposal in April 2020
  2. In the Commission on Second Generation Reforms we examine how reforms of public policies and institutions can go beyond economic incentives and mandates to increase education among youth, decrease unemployment and improve jobs. This Commission was set down in November 2020 and is expected to make recommendations as it goes along and to finalise its proposals ultimo 2022.

Finally, I am an expert and country coordinator in the European Social Policy Network (ESPN) that councils the European Commission on social policy matters (2014-). ESPN conducts thematic social policy studies related to the European agenda, e.g. social investments, homelessness, pension adequacy, and long-term care.
