Current research and teaching
Research interests concern international cooperation in the broad field of development focusing on governance issues, policy processes and global-local linkages. Current research deal with transformative partnerships and implementation of the United Nations 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), building on previous projects about legitimacy and responsibility of realising the SDGs at the national level as well as research on legitimacy in global governance with special focus on global health.
Teaching evolves around development studies, policy studies, comparative politics, and international relations. Kristina Jönsson is coordinator of a university-wide graduate school with a focus on societal challenges and Agenda 2030 (see Agenda 2030 graduate school). In 2012 she was promoted to Excellent Teaching Practitioner.
