“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality”

-Desmond Tutu

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world"

-Nelson Mandela

Welcome

 

Welcome to my personal website!

My daily work is at the University of South-Eastern Norway, Faculty of Humanities, Sports and Educational Sciences, as an Associate Professor at the Department of Culture, Religion and Social Studies.

The focus in my academic life is comparative/international perspectives on democracy, human rights, citizenship and multiculturalism in relation to education and teacher education, in low-income as well as high-income countries. On this website you will find more information.

Currently I serve as the President of the Nordic Comparative and International Education Society (NOCIES) and as the Editor-in-Chief (together with Halla Holmarsdottir) of the newly established Nordic Journal of Comparative and International Education (NJCIE).

 

I tillegg er jeg engasjert i styret for Nasjonalt nettverk for samfunnsfaga i lærer-, lektor- og barnehagelærerutdanningene.
