Village life in the West Bank

TRAVEL LETTER: Palestinian Minister of Culture and award-winning author Atef Abu Saif will highlight the rich cultural heritage and bring art to the people.

Neighborhood in the North

: Trine Eklund writes about experiences from her peace and dialogue journey in Russia. Why does the West paint an enemy picture and impose sanctions on the country, she asks. She believes we have no reason to fear our Russian neighbor.

Travel letter from Crimea – one year after

: We rejoice with the people of Crimea that the gloomy image presented in the Western media does not correspond to reality.

To leave his house

: Henry David Thoreau's famous house at Walden Pound was both a political, architectural and ecological act. 

Seven days in Crimea

: The picture Norwegian media consumers get of the situation in Crimea is anything but correct.

A Sodom by the Sea

: When the tabloid press visits Thai Pattaya, some vulgar sex tourist is always portrayed. This underscores the fact that the city is a magnet for the martyrs of formation.

Instinct and deception in Tel Aviv

: Someone has to give Israelis the red pill, the one who makes the veil fall. 

A memory book from Moscow

: Well spread over almost 50 years, I have visited Moscow several times, the first time in 1967. It has been reasonably contrast-filled experiences.

Iraq: Ferris wheel and big politics

: It is rare that I have seen such a large density of amusement parks, and it is rare that I have experienced such a strained silence.

A wonderful city, a sad city

: Beirut: Disaster has its own logic – slow, slow, people live their lives. How does a crisis manifest itself? What signs should we learn to read? And what does it mean to write in a time like now?

An illusion of freedom

: Dubai facilitates a comfortable, sedative lifestyle – at least just comfortable enough to avoid a flourishing of fertile culture.

Flaum in the Eden of Europe

: When Cannes notices the effects of climate change.
