 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I have a Ph.D. in philosophy and have published on pragmatism, ethics and political philosophy mainly. I
have also worked in journalism for many years, both as a freelance writer and as a reporter and
correspondent. I have an additional interest in Soviet history and have written one book and many articles
on the Icelandic Socialist movement, its connection to the Comintern etc. My most recent research activity
is in GULAG studies and I am working on a book dealing with the pre-war Stalinist Gulag.
In philosophy I have concentrated somewhat on John Dewey and other pragmatists, also later philosophers
connected to the pragmatist movement such as Richard Rorty.
