On the 4th of December, an article was published on DN Debatt on xenophobia among the Sweden Democrats voters. The article refers to a study that was initiated when the writers Peter Hedström and Tim Müller were still working at the Institute for Futures Studies.
New director – new research focus. That is how it works at the Institute for Futures Studies. This means that the new director Gustaf Arrhenius will also act as a research director and is now creating the research program that will guide the research at the institute the next few years.
Gustaf Arrhenius, Professor of Practical Philosophy at Stockholm University, is known for his research on our moral obligations to future generations and on issues in democratic theory. On November the 1st, he will assume the position as director of the Institute for Futures Studies.
