Importance of different perspectives
Participant at the seminar, Simen Tandberg, found the presentations very interesting and useful.
-The seminar provided important insights to the relationship between individuals and authorities and governance in a country that is very different from ours. When we are to teach on a topic such as human rights it is important to see the different perspectives, and this is what we learnt today, says Tandberg.
