Learning must be entertaining as well as educational. I regularly seek to challenge the audience with eye-openers, new insights and through discussions on various relevant topics.
Are you interested in international relations, Danish foreign policy, security policy or the influence of religion? I can give an introduction to these topics and set up for discussion with eye-openers.

- Introduction to International Relations: with a specific focus on migration issues and current US Politics. In my lectures, there will be examples from my fieldwork or research, to make the lectures more personal and educational. Examples of topics are 'R2P' or the responsibility to protect, terrorism and counterterrorism, international organizations, security policy and civil society (Southeast Asia).
- Introduction to theories of international relations: with this lecture, the differences between the classical theories of international relations will be explored, especially realism and liberalism. Real-world examples will be used to exemplify each approach and make the lecture more educational.
- Religion C and the influence of religion on policy development: these lectures build on the official curriculum for religious studies in high school and will explore religion as a concept, Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Buddhism. Presenting the four religions with historical background and core beliefs, and drawing lines to present-day, I seek to show how religion and politics are somewhat intertwined. I will use cases from northeast Thailand and Southeast Asia in general.
My lectures can be either 45 min + 15 min questions or 1 hr 30 min + 30 min questions.
I will usually build my lectures up around some thought-provoking facts or a small story that gives a twist to the topic. An introduction is then provided to ensure we are all on the same page before diving deeper into the topic at hand. Finally, I will return to the beginning and see how the story or fact can be seen in light of what has been taught during the lecture and I will open up for debate and questions from the audience.
