Maria Norstedt
Senior Lecturer

I am interested in questions of power and inequality. In my research, I have explored these questions by studying disabilities and working life.

In the ongoing research project Necessity or opportunity: Self-employment among people with disabilities that entail reduced work capacity, business ownership by people with disabilities that entails reduced work capacity is explored. What are the motives for establishing business ownership and what factors influence the conditions? I have also studied disclosure of invisible disabilities in working life as well as the return to work after stroke.
