Johan Wennström received his Ph.D. in Political Science in February 2019 from Linköping University. The title of his dissertation is Interpreting Policy Convergence Between the Left and the Right: Essays on Education and Immigration. His research focus is on the moral foundations of policymaking. He is particularly interested in education and migration policy. He has previously worked as a political adviser for the Swedish government and as an editorial writer in Svenska Dagbladet, where he is presently a regular contributor to the culture pages.
Some of the questions Johan Wennströms tries to answer in his research:
- What role does moral foundations play in political decision making?
- Has political convergence between left and right had any significance for Swedish educational policy?
- What is the function of cognitive styles in policy decisions?
