Erika Werner

Senior lecturer


I've been teaching at the School of Social Work since I was a PhD student. At the moment I teach an online course (SOAA11) in social work; economics, politics and society in term 2 (SOPA21); and on the fifth term of the BSc programme (SOPA53). I am course director for the English-taught course Social work in Sweden.


I completed my doctoral dissertation in April 2012: Safe, betrayed or uncertain. Thoughts and preperations for retirement. My research concerns people preparing for their retirement. In my dissertation I interviewed people from three age groups: 65-70 years, 45-50 years and 30-35 years, living in two municipalities in Skåne. The different age groups (in a relatively clear way) reflect the changes within the pension system and how it affects people and their thoughts and preparations. The pension system has become more individualized and personal responsibility has increased with the reform.
