Maria Bangura Arvidsson

Director of Undergraduate Studies

PhD in Social Work, Senior Lecturer


I teach and supervise and examine student theses on the undergraduate and graduate levels both in Lund and Helsingborg.


I do research in the field of Child and Family Welfare.
Questions about parenthood, especially fatherhood, and relations between children and parents have engaged me for several years. I am mainly interested in different forms of parenting and what is - both for parents themselves and for various social actors - considered "good" or "poor" parenting. Even children's experiences and perceptions are an important focus in these contexts.

As well as researchers and teaching, I also have many years of experience in voluntary social work concerning single parents, including within the nationwide organisation "Makalösa föräldrar", which works with social activities as well as advocacy campaigns.
