CBS Executive


My current research revolves around two main topics. On the one hand, I’ve since my PhD been preoccupied with the history and foundational problems of Organization Theory – in particular with what has happened to the core object of Organization Theory, i.e. ‘organization’.

On the other hand, I’m involved in a large research project on ‘the ethics of office’ in state service. In conjunction with this, my research explores the conditions for and critiques of bureaucratic office-holding, with a primary emphasis on Denmark. These two lines of research currently intersect in a study of anti-statist left- and right-wing critiques of formal organizational principles.

Primary research areas

Organization theory

Bureaucracy and formal organization

Ethos of office / state service


Organization theory – HA(fil.)
