Research

Pelle Korsbæk Sørensen is an Assistant Professor at the Research Centre for Health Promotion at Roskilde University. His research examines the interdisciplinary field of health promotion, sociology, political science and research on psychosocial working environment. For the study year of 2018/2019 Pelle teaches courses in scientific methods, mixed methods, theory of science, and the context of health policies - with specific attention to the notions of social pathologies of contemporary modern society and the ethical dimensions of working life.

His current research is on moral and ethical dimensions in relation to experiences of a decline in the quality of welfare services. In relation to this he is involved in a research project on new perspectives on Danish nurses’ psychosocial health.
