He has been an international affiliate at the Environmental Evaluation Unit at the University of Cape Town and at the Programme for Land and Agrarian Studies at the University of the Western Cape, South Africa. He has also been employed by the Swedish Agency for Development Evaluation (2008-2010).

Areas of interest

Sjöstedt's research interests mainly concerns comparative politics and comparative political economy of developing countries and deals with politics of development, institutional theory, and natural resource management.

Most recently, he was - together with Sverker Jagers and Aksel Sundström - awarded funding for the project "Corruption and Wildlife Management: The Logics of Collective Action in Transnationally Protected Reserves" as well as for the project "Climate change and the prospects for economic growth: How extreme weather events affect regime stability." He is also a Principal Investigator at the recently established UGOT Challenge center "Center for Collective Action Research" (CeCAR).
