Join our new bachelor course about “Science and Democracy” (in Norwegian). Should we replace democracy, which sometimes leads to bad outcomes, with the rule of scientific experts, which has the promise to bring skill and knowledge to policy-making? Or how else should we use science to make policy? Can scientific research ever be free from political or moral values? Should science be more inclusive or democratic? Why is there so much opposition to science?

In this course you will learn how to engage critically and responsibly with such questions (the course will be held in Norwegian)
