TRUST AND POLICE

The Students Voice in a World of Disarray: (In)Security and Bloody Headlines

War, climate change, gender oppression: Just casual notions of the world we live in? “Bloody Headlines” cannot be accepted as a given reality, they must be hatched and sprouted with new seeds.

A relationship between crime and police

"I argue that policing is largely a community orientated profession, in which their relationship to the people they protect is essential for a safe and sustainable environment.

Three of these students will work on a One Health project spearheaded by the Norwegian Veterinary Institutes Hannah Jørgensen dealing with rabies in Malawi, while four will travel to Zambia to work on various questions related to wild life.
