Erica Falkenström

PhD, Education

I have a Ph.D. in education and my research concerns ethical competence and responsibility in health care governance, organization and management. At the Institute for Futures Studies, I am leading the research project "The power over expert reports: contents, origins and consequences", financed by FORTE:s special call for research on the quality, organisation and process of social welfare. The purpose of this project is to investigate the contents and usage of commissioned expert reports at the regional and national levels, reports which are concerned with governance and management of the health care system.

Project collaborators are Anna T.Höglund, associate professor in ethics at Uppsala University and Stefan Svallfors, professor at the Institute for Futures Studies.
