Anna-Karin Stockenstrand

Universitetslektor|Senior Lecturer

I am a teacher and researcher in business administration, especially accounting and finance.

Area of interest

My research is about the effect of regulation. Currently I am conducting reserach on pensions and I try to answer questions such as why the system looks the way it does today, who the system is for and what kind of effects new regulation has in the long run. Important concepts for me is glocalisation, responsive regulation, standardisation and institutional logics.


Sustainable pensions (2019-2022)

Sustainability is a broad concept that can include many different aspects, such as social, financial and environmental. This project focusses on sustainable pensions by asking how all these aspects can be achieved in the area of pensions. There are four sub-questions in the project. First it takes an interest in how insurance contracts should be accounted for in order to achieve transparency. The second is how funds should be managed. The third is what sustainable regulation is in the area of pensions. The fourth is what work structures are beneficial in order for people to work longer and be healthier in the future.

Teaching and tutoring

I teach accounting and auditing theory and financial regulation.
