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

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.
