Senior lecturer, Department of Government, Uppsala University

Personlig presentation
Senior lecturer in political science at Uppsala University with main focus on history of political ideas and political thought. Both in my research and my teaching have I come to intersect feminist theory, democratic theory and human rights in various ways. I find the role of civil servants and a public ethos in safeguarding democracy particularly salient. I am currently working on a book about Islamic feminism and liberal political thought. In my next book I suggest what could be the ethical, moral and philosophical components of a democratic personality.
