My research portfolio bifurcates in two distinct areas:
  1. Core executive governance and institutionalization of economic and budgetary governance. Since 2000 I have worked with central government coordination, particularly the Ministry of Finance and its role in a Danish and international context. I have conducted several large empirical field- and archive studies inside government and participated in comparative projects on core executive governance and institutional strategies concerning policy development, expenditure politics and budgeting.

  2. Public governance in the intersection between local government and the third sector, focusing particularly on the decentralization of social housing policy. Since the 1990s I have dealt with local governance, notably in the social housing sector, covering 20% of the housing market. Departing from a governance approach, I investigate the integration of local political mobilization and public management in local policy making and administrative practices. I have worked in a historical and comparative perspective with welfare housing markets and currently focus on a recent reform in local governance relations and technologies.
