Tone Alm Andreassen


I am a sociologist with a dr.polit. from the University of Oslo. My research interests are the role of professions in the welfare sector, street-level organizations, public sector reform and reform implementation, service user involvement, service integration, inter-organizational collaboration and networks. Related topics are activation work and work (re)integration, disability and discrimination in the labour market.

Together with Espen Dahl and Therese Saltkjel, I have headed Integrate, a core research group on coordinated assistance to enable integrated and coherent pathways to work for groups on the margins of the labour market.
