About Ingemar Elander
Ingemar Elander is a senior professor in politics at Örebro University and guest professor at Mälardalen University, Sweden. His research interests cover urban governance in a broad sense as exemplified in several publications on cities and climate change, environment and democracy, faith-based organisations and politics, urban partnerships and public health. Recent research cover sustainable development and urban renewal in Swedish neighbourhoods and cities, with a special focus on social and political dimensions as documented in several publications co-authored with geographer Eva Gustavsson. Elander is co-editor of Urban Governance in Europe (Eckardt & Elander 2009), and co-author of Faith-based Organisations and Social Exclusion in Sweden (Elander & Fridolfsson 2011), an extensive report which has inspired several reviewed articles and book chapters authored with Charlotte Fridolfsson 2012-2015. Work in progress include co-authored manuscripts on securitization and counter-securitization related to politics and religion, and the development of central-local government relations in Sweden. His three latest publications are:
