  1. 1. Addressing poor educational outcomes among children with out-of-home care experience : Studies on impact, pathways, and interventions

    Author : Hilma Forsman; Lars Brännström; Bo Vinnerljung; Marie Sallnäs; Mattias Strandh; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; child welfare; out-of-home care; educational outcomes; impact; pathways; interventions; longitudinal; evaluation; socialt arbete; Social Work;

    Abstract : Children with out-of-home care (OHC; foster family/residential care) experience is a high-risk group for future adverse outcomes. With an ambition of supporting the design of effective preventive child welfare measures targeting children in OHC, the overall aim of this thesis is to examine education as a possible intervention path for improving their development and overall life chances.

  2. 2. Pathways and destinations : Spatial mobility and socioeconomic integration of international migrants in Sweden

    Author : Louisa Vogiazides; Karen Haandrikman; Charlotta Hedberg; Gideon Bolt; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Spatial mobility; Trajectories; Neighbourhoods; Regions; Segregation; Socioeconomic integration; Contextual effects; Longitudinal data analysis; Migrants; Refugees; Sweden; geografi med kulturgeografisk inriktning; Geography with Emphasis on Human Geography;

    Abstract : Over the last three decades, Sweden has received large inflows of international migrants and particularly refugees. The issues of migrants’ residential patterns and socioeconomic integration are therefore of great interest. A long-lasting concern is that residential segregation hampers migrants’ social and economic outcomes. READ MORE

  3. 3. β-adrenergic stimulation of VEGF gene expression : intracellular signalling pathways

    Author : Magnus J. Fredriksson; Georg Breier; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; zoofysiologi; Zoological physiology;

    Abstract : In the present study, the intracellular signalling pathway mediating ß-adrenergic stimulation of the expression of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) gene was investigated.VEGF is an activator of angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels, and is considered to be a major regulator of both physiologically and pathologically related angiogenesis, as well as being essential for development of the vascular system.

    Abstract : Research on smoking has to a great deal been conducted within a public health or a medical context, or focused on policy making. Fewer studies have taken their point of departure in a social sciences context, and still fewer have analysed why individuals start and cease to smoke, and how and why smoking patterns on an aggregate level change over time and vary between different population groups.
