Åke Sandberg is a researcher and author within work, labour, management, IT and media. He holds an MBA (Gothenburg school of Economics) and PhD in sociology (Uppsala). Emeritus professor at Stockholm University, earlier at KTH the Royal Institute of Technology (School of Computer Science and Communication, and Institute of Industrial Management) and Arbetslivsinstitutet (the National Institute for Working Life, NIWL). This is my private homepage and blog, but of course I am drawing on my research and work.
I see this site also as an additional research tool, inspired by my friend and colleague Michel Freyssenet in Paris. He sees it as a tool to collect, organize (also for himself), publish and make available research and publications and perhaps reaching new audiences and even creating possibilities for cooperation.
I have worked as a researcher, first at FOA (the Defence Research Institute, on planning theory) and since the mid 1970’s first at KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology (IBAD, Information processing) and then for almost three decades at the Arbetslivscentrum/ Arbetslivsinstitutet/ the National Institute of Working Life; during two periods also as an adjunct professor at KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology, at the Department of Industrial management, and in the School of Computer Science and Communication (CSC). I have been a guest professor and researcher at universities in Roskilde, Sydney and Aix-en-Provence.
Since the politically motivated closing of the NIWL (by a center-right government) I am a professor, now emeritus, at the Department of Sociology at Stockholm University, mainly advising students’ final exam papers, and holding occasional seminars. My personal website at the Department is found here .
On this site you will now find, by way of introduction, an overview of my research interests and of my research publications. I will also list and publish some of my opinion articles (not updated). Current comments and new publications will appear in my blog.
