March Monthly Meeting

March 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

International Politics – A View from the Inside

The Monthly Meeting Committee is pleased to announce the March speaker,

Christian Borch, one of Norway’s most well-known journalists and NRK news anchors. He has a degree in journalism from the University of Oslo and is a graduate from the London School of Economics (International Political History), and a graduate from the Norwegian Defence University College.

He served on the Norwegian government’s Security and Disarmament Council for 10 years and has been a member of several official councils and committees.

Mr Borch has received many awards for excellence in journalism. For 40 years, he worked as a foreign and diplomatic correspondent and news anchor for NRK. He has written 18 books.

Borch will use his latest book, Bak Kulissene (Behind the scenes), as a starting point for his lecture. The book offers an autobiographical tour d’horizon of his career as a reporter in the midst of international affairs and brings into the open numerous lesser-known relations and conspiracies from the political shadows.

‘The world and what makes it tick is never as simple, clean and ideal as political leaders want us to believe,’ he says. Borch is a fierce critic of the increasing dominance of commercial and financial factors in the past decades, claiming that many democratic governments have lost their grip on the social realities.

As a public speaker, he aims to make his audience observe and reflect on the state of things.
