Stig Westerdahl

  • Senior Lecturer

Stig Westerdahl is Associate Professor and Senior Lecturer in Business Administration at the Department of Urban Studies. His research is based on an interest in organizational issues and accounting. These interests have been put into research on non-profit organizations and the voluntary sector; the accounting industry and accountants everyday work as well as within regional development. Stig Westerdahl prefers to work with participatory observation and interviews. Research has focused on the role of culture in regional development, as well as major property deals, researching the Swedish state’s sale of the real estate company Vasakronan 2008. Over the last years research has been undertaken on the role of Municipal Housing Companies, especially the impact of accounting in view of social responsibility. Another focus of interest has been to study markets drawing on economic sociology and organizational theory, where public transport is one arena. Collaboration between various stakeholders has been studied both in public transport and in crime prevention activities in Swedish vulnerable areas.
