Background

Hanne Hagtvedt Vik (b. 1974) is a professor of international history after 1918. She holds a PhD degree from the University of Oslo (2009) and has been an International Security Program Research Fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs of Harvard Kennedy School of Government (2011-2012) and a guest instructor at Yale University (2011, co-taught the graduate seminar "Human Rights in the Twentieth Century and Beyond" with Professor Jay Winter). In 2010 she was awarded His Majesty the King of Norway’s Gold Medal for the best PhD dissertation in the field of Humanities. Before she started her doctorate, she worked the Ministry of Defense (2002-2005) and was a trainee in Statskonsult's  Government Ministries Trainee Program (2001-2002). She was a member of the Foreign Ministry's working group for the restructuring of the Fredskorpset (1998-1999, in 2018 renamed NOREC, the Norwegian Agency for Exchange Cooperation)  and served on its Board after it was organized as an independent unit subordinate to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (2000-2003). 

Research Interests

Vik’s research has centered on issues related to international organizations and transnational political activism. She is particularly interested in international law, human rights and development assistance. Her publications deal with international cooperation within the United Nations (UN), the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the World Bank, and she has written on both American and Norwegian foreign policy and Nordic cooperation. Currently she works on the internationalization of indigenous rights. 

Teaching

Vik teaches on international history after 1918. She supervises bachelor, master and PhD students and is particularly interested in projects dealing with the history of human rights and indigenous rights.
