This is a short article on why there seems to be a high level of mistrust among the police and the community globally. I aim to highlight why trusting the police is pertinent and point out some key issues and recommendations that are relevant for the police and communities in developing collaborative strategies for the future.
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. I argue novel ideas must replace incumbent regime ways of thinking, where students are important actors with agency and responsibility to create change.
For some, peace implies the laying down of arms and for others, it connotes the absence of war. In as much as this duality to peace is important, I contend that true peace entails much more than just the laying down of arms or the mere absence of war.
"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. This relationship, however, is two-sided, as it is not only up to the police to build constructive connections, but also the community’s responsibility to partake in this partnership."
We spoke to Surendra Kumar Sharma, one of our PEN members with a long career in international policing. Mr Sharma is a retired Inspector General from India who has extensive experience with police and security reform in several post-conflict countries.

During the spring of 2022, seven students from the class of 2018 choose EDUPROMO projects for their major year. 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. The students will be given an unique oppurtunity to gain insight in exotic and severe animal and zoonotic diseases, bringing back first hand experiences and knowledge valuable to ensure public and animal health in Norway in the future.
