During the years I have supervised many (ca 80) bachelor- master- and honors theses research projects in the field of health sciences, European Public Health and Global Health. These research projects are characterized by a qualitative research design: conceptual document analysis, qualitative policy evaluation, qualitative analysis of care practices, qualitative analysis of prevention programmes, qualitative analysis of governance practices.
