My project (Dec 2018 – Okt 2022) is placed in the research fields of civil society and organizational studies and scrutinizes emerging forms of temporally flexible, non-membership-based civil society organizing in the borderlands between volunteering and civic action. I draw on a processual-relational ontology and practice theory in exploring how organizing plays out, the role of social media herein and what characterizes engagement produced in such organizing.
I am part of the research project Civil Society in the Shadow of the State (Cistas.dk) and a member of the research organizations International Society of Third Sector Research (ISTR) and the European Group for Organizational Studies (EGOS).
I hold a MA in Political Science from the University of Copenhagen and have a decade of practical experience working with different issues pertaining to civil society development and socially disadvantaged youth through employment in state, municipality and a social housing association.
