Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University College establishes an international visiting professorship that aims to attract philanthropy scholars whose work in the humanities or social sciences can contribute to the Swedish and international conversations on philanthropy, foundations, democracy, and equality. Ideally, such a scholar will bring some clarity to if and how philanthropies, foundations, charities and non-profit-organizations can play democratizing roles in society and not least in the lives of immigrants and other minority groups.
Furthermore, such scholars will add to and complement Ersta Sköndal Bräcke’s new Ph.D. program and its strategic, long-term research program on the future of the welfare society in Sweden and beyond, with a focus on how the older, more monolithic welfare state is giving way to an emerging, far more pluralistic welfare society. In practical terms this will take the form of contributing to graduate courses and on-going research projects as well as developing joint research proposals for new projects with colleagues at Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University College.
The long-term, strategic aim of the program is thus to strengthen and develop the research on civil society at Ersta Sköndal Bräcke’s Institute for Civil Society Research in general and the research on philanthropy, foundations, charity, and non-profit organizations in particular.
The guest scholar program has been made possible through a grant from Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
