I’m approaching retirement but continue to work part time as a professor of political science at the Oslo and Akershus University College. My 30 years at HiOA have been interrupted by periods abroad of three years at the American University in the US to get my PhD and as visiting lecturer at the University of Latvia for 1.5 years.
I've always been involved in voluntary work. Currently I chair the local history association that covers the district of Grefsen, Kjelsås, and Nydalen in Oslo and I’m active in the Norwegian Neighborhood Federation.New Articles
