About Mia Rönnmar

My main research areas are Swedish, comparative and EU labour law and industrial relations. I apply legal-analytical, comparative and interdisciplinary/social science approaches to labour law research. I am Dean and Professor in private law, working as a researcher and teacher in labour law at the Faculty of Law.
I have vast experience of comparative and international research co-operation, and have published widely in monographs, edited volumes and international and national journals. I am a member of the Norma Research Programme at Lund University, including its research environment in Elder Law, and a member of the ReMarkLab Research Programme at Stockholm University.
Within the Norma Elder Law Research Environment, financed by Ragnar Söderberg Foundation and Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation, I conduct a research project on ‘Flexicurity and the Legal Position of the Elderly’. Older workers, employment protection, flexible employment and the ban on age discrimination are in focus. Here, I and Ann Numhauser-Henning are currently working on a large comparative research project on age discrimination and labour law, resulting in the publication of an edited book by Kluwer Law International in 2015. I am also participating in a related interdisciplinary research project on ‘working life beyond retirement and "stayers" in the labour market’ (with researchers at the Linneaus University, Sweden, financed by the Kamprad Foundation.
I teach labour law at different levels at the law study programme. I am supervisor for Ida Hellberg, Andrea Iossa and Niklas Selberg, doctoral students in labour law, and I was assistant supervisor for Annika Berg, Doctor of Laws in labour law in May 2008, and for Emma Holm, Doctor of Laws in EU law in February 2011.
