During the last decades, it have been raised questions about the role of private actors in the public welfare services. This project, that is done in cooperation between Fafo and Economics Norway, will map potential differences between services from public and private providers. Another point in the discussion has been the authorities' ability to control private actors.
Fafo will be part of a new project that includes a survey among skilled workers in construction techniques, health-service and childhood and youth development. One of the questions is whether the employees consider their competence to be relevant for their work. Kaja Regård (pictured), Mathilde Bjørnset and Torgeir Nyen are in the project-team.
Centre for Senior Policy have launched a campaign called #the15best. The focus in on older workers and late career decisions, and how “the 15 next years can be the 15 best of their careers”. Anne Inga Hilsen at Fafo will interview older workers that have changed job one or several times after they turned 50.
The project will provide a history of 100 years of LO's legal department, 1922-2022. The book will show the development of the office's work; the lawyer's cooperation with the authorities and participation in international cooperation; work with the working environment legislation; and the development of labour law practice.
Wage formation in the Scandinavian countries Denmark, Norway and Sweden has several similarities, but does also in some aspects differ. In this project Fafo will look into the different national models. It will be conducted by Kristin Alsos and Kristine Nergaard on behalf of five national unions in Sweden.

The task will be conducted in cooporation with STAMI (The National Institute of Occupational Health) who will have the responsibility for reporting on working environment issues.

Anne Hege Strand (pictured) will do the work together with Roy A. Nilsen, Jon Helgheim Holte and Arne Backer Grønningsæter.
