Stefan Svallfors

Stefan Svallfors is professor in Sociology (2000-) and Baltic Scholar (2010-2016) at Umeå University, visiting professor at the Swedish Institute for Social Research, and researcher at the Institute for Futures Studies in Stockholm. He is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. His former research field was the comparative study of attitudes and values and their links to social structure and institutions. He served as PI for several major attitude research programs: the International Social Survey Program, the European Social Survey, and the Swedish Welfare State Surveys. His latest book in this field is “Contested Welfare States. Welfare Attitudes in Europe and Beyond” (forthcoming at Stanford University Press, 2012).

His current research mainly concerns “policy professionals” in Sweden, that is, people who are employed to do politics and affect politics rather than elected to office. They include groups such as political advisors, political secretaries, PR consultants, think-tank intellectuals, and other groups. The project studies the work of policy professionals as a form of political influence, and their motivations, careers, and labour market. In 2015 the book “Makt utan mandat?” [Power without mandate?] will be published.
