SFI researchers

The research on social policy and welfare focuses on vulnerable groups such as homeless people and people with addictions, but also on elderly people and people with disabilities. What these target groups have in common are that they all, to some extent, use and/or depend on social interventions and public welfare in general, such as large scale programmes and new innovative interventions. Therefore SFI carries out research on how social interventions and public welfare affect behaviour and distribution, as well as on care for vulnerable groups, , social work, efficiency and quality of welfare service and social aspects of health.
