Labriola is a part of the research group Worklife and Inclusion (WIN). The group seeks to integrate health- and social science in a way that is useful for the individual as well as the society. We seek to produce relevant knowledge that contributes to healthy, active lives in a society that has room for everyone.
Our main research areas include:
- Work participation among young people not in school or education (NEET), and people with different health complaints, physical disabilities, or with a cultural minority background.
- Social inequality in health and participation in society.
- Inclusion and exclusion.
- Evaluation of vocation rehabilitation programs, such as Individual Placement and Support (IPS)
- Individual follow-up and coordination of people on sick-leave.
- The effect of physical activity on sickness absence and work capacity.
In order to sustain the welfare state, we have to enable work participation for more people in work-capable age-range. By investigating the effect of vocational rehabilitation efforts through systematic evaluations, we seek to contribute to a working life that has room for all. The aim is that the knowledge we produce can inform political decisions regarding health and work participation.
