Södertörn University has converted to distance education – no teaching on university premises from Wednesday 18 March

The Swedish Government recommends that after 18 March all higher education institutions move to distance education. Södertörn University has followed this recommendation and there will be no teaching on university premises until further notice. This is likely to apply throughout the spring semester. All written examinations will be replaced by other forms of examination for the entire spring semester. Students are asked to stay updated about their course or programme via SH-StudyWeb. Staff and students can access the university premises with their keycards and both Infocenter and the library are open.

Hans E. Andersson, Ph.D.

Chief Administrative Officer, and Associate Professor in Political Science.

Since 2006, I have been employed at Södertörn University. Before taking on my current role as Chief Administrative Officer, I held the post of lecturer of Political Science, and have also served as Head of School, Institution of Social Sciences, and Director of the undergraduate programme International Migration and Ethnic Relations.

I conducted my PhD studies and was awarded my doctorate from the Department of Political Science, Göteborg University. In addition, I have spent prolonged periods at, the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Belgium, the Swedish Institute of International Affairs, Stockholm, the United States Congress and George Washington University, Washington D.C., USA, the Swedish National Defence College, Stockholm, and the Swedish Parliament.

Theoretically, my research interests lie in the field of International Relations (not least the EU), and, empirically, in the areas of immigration and integration. My primary areas of expertise are international relations, but I have taught on a wide range of topics, not least comparative and constitutional politics.
