Aligning Public Services

Congratulations to Maria Våge Traasdal for her project Aligning Public Services winning the AHO AWARD January 2020 for her project Aligning Public Services.

Master project autumn 2019 SOD AHO

The public sector is complex and multifaceted. Not only is the public sector complex in itself, they are also responsible for managing a complex society. When it comes to growing up, for example, many different policy areas meet.

Families are also complex. A family life is influenced by a number of factors, which differ in each family. For example, this is about how living conditions, health status, social belonging and care situation are. Some families are more vulnerable than others, and this often results in the involvement of public assistance.
